AEG Replaces Fair Board At Yum! Center

AEG Facilities has been named new facility manager for the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky., replacing the Kentucky State Fair Board, which has operated the venue since it opened in 2010.

AEG already had a contract with the owner Louisville Arena Authority to bring concerts and live events to the Yum Center and Freedom Hall, which was apparently a deciding factor. Potential suitors included Global Spectrum and SMG.

The contract was expected to be drawn up at press time. The Kentucky State Fair Board was put under review in April after expenses exceeded expectations.
