Kentucky Sports Marketing is a combination of people, communities and state entities throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky that understand how important sports events are to their economic well-being and culture. It's a group of people who work with one another to recruit and attract sporting events to the state, and to provide the best service possible to our customers and their events.
