LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Kentucky State Fair Board is hoping to attract more large conventions and other shows and they hope bringing a luxury hotel to the grounds will guarantee it.

The Fair Board is talking with dozens of hotel development companies to investigate building near Gate One.

They want the hotel to have a minimum of 600 rooms with full service amenities and serve as a headquarters for conventions and other trade shows.
