Louisville Tourism

Since 1968, Louisville Tourism’s primary goal has been to enhance the area’s economy through tourism development – to promote and sell Louisville as a world-class destination. Tourism is the third largest industry in Louisville, which supports over 60,000 local tourism-related jobs in the Louisville MSA. Guests are coming from around the globe to attend a meeting, convention, special event, as a leisure guest or a combination.  More than 16.4 million visitors are experiencing Louisville’s authenticity, bourbon and culinary scenes and our unique brand of Southerness.

Louisville Sports Commision

The Louisville Sports Commission was founded in 1999 as an economic development tool to attract, host and create sporting events and activities in the community that generate hotel room night visits. In recent years, they have added to the community’s quality of life by promoting active lifestyles, especially with youth in disadvantaged neighborhoods, and by helping attract and retain workforce. They are primarily a business-to-business, sales and service organization and have developed a reputation of event success guaranteed in the community and with their primary clients – national and international governing bodies and other sports event rights holders. In recent years, they have developed a business-to-consumer component as they expanded their portfolio of owned and operated events.
