LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 1, 2024) – VisitLEX announced today that it has successfully recruited the 2025 US Sports Congress to Lexington on Dec. 7-10, 2025.

The conference will be held at the Central Bank Center with more than 200 event planners and destination representatives traveling to the Bluegrass Region.

“We’re thrilled they’ve chosen Kentucky and can’t wait to welcome them next year,” said Mary Quinn Ramer, president of VisitLEX. “Meeting planners are the decision-makers who steer events to destinations. Every large convention that is booked at the Central Bank Center and other large venues comes through a meeting planner. That’s why VisitLEX works so hard to attract meeting planners and show them our amazing community. This high-profile event will lead to much more convention business and sporting events in the future, which helps local restaurants and attractions.”

US Sports Congress attracts top level decision-makers from the world of amateur sports events and tourism. Its conference provides professional development and networking that leads to business connections at the highest levels.

Attendees of this event are senior executives of sport governing bodies and other industry leaders who represent tens of thousands of athletes who participate in their programs. Past presenters have included representatives from LPGA, Major League Baseball and many other sports brands and organizations.
