Located in Western Kentucky, Murray combines a small town atmosphere with a progressive university attitude. Murray State University, ranked by U.S. News as one of the nation’s top public universities, gives Murray an innovative edge with state-of-the-art technology and high-quality resources.
In addition to the university venues, there are also additional spaces that are ideal for those looking for a retreat-like setting in a rural environment. While being a rural community, Murray is still centrally-located and is less than a four hour drive from many large cities including Nashville, Louisville, St. Louis, and Memphis. Murray is also only a 30-minute drive from the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, giving both residents and visitors an opportunity to take part in boating, fishing, and other outdoor activities year-round.
Conventions and conferences of up to 350 people can be held here. A prime location and many flexible venues make Murray a great place for conventions and trade shows of all sizes.
