One of the announcements we will likely hear in today’s press conference about the Lexington Center and Rupp Arena is that the Lexington Center has submitted a request for naming rights for the new convention center.
This means that the center is seeking a “naming right partner,” aka corporate sponsor, who would have the right to create and develop a logo for the convention center, which would be jointly owned by the Lexington Center Corporation. Keep in mind, this is only for the convention center, NOT Rupp Arena. Yet, at least. The Lexington Center will take bids over the summer and announce the new naming rights partner on September 19th.
What corporate sponsor do you want for the convention center? Please, no KFC, guys.
