TEAMS conference coming to Louisville in 2018

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville landed a new conference focused on sporting events, the Louisville Sports Commission announced Friday. The TEAMS '18 Conference & Expo will take place in October 2018, at the Kentucky International Convention Center.

The Convention Center will be re-opening that year from a ground-up remodel and expansion.

"It is long term relationships like the one we have with Louisville that allow us to unreservedly commit to a destination even when the construction crews have barely began their work and all we have to go by are architectural drawings of what one day will be," Timothy Schneider of Schneider Publishing said.

The TEAMS '18 Conference will be headquartered at the Omni Louisville, also under construction and opening in 2018.

The conference last came to town in 2007.
