"The Gordon Ford College of Business uses the Knicely Conference Center for a majority
of our professional events for student, faculty and business executive meetings.
Our event sizes range from formal events with over 175 guests to meetings with 15
individuals, and the professionalism of the staff is the same for any size event.
The quality of service is excellent, the food is top notch, and the staff is exceptional.
Would recommend the facility for any event!"

"As someone who uses numerous meeting facilities across the state each year, I can
honestly say that none of them rank on the same level as the Knicely Conference Center.
Being one of their very first users, I have literally held hundreds of meetings there.
It’s not just because of the location and facilities of the Center but equally important
to me is the outstanding support staff that leaves nothing undone to make every meeting
a success. They are the very best I have encountered and I wouldn’t think of having
a meeting in Bowling Green anywhere except at the Knicely Conference Center."
