October is great time to be in the Bluegrass Region of Lexington, KY with mild temperatures and autumn colors covering the rolling hills. It is also one of the busiest months in the region with thoroughbred racing in full swing at the Keeneland Race Course. October was chosen as the month to host the 16th Global Conference on Sustainable Manufacturing in Lexington, KY to give you an opportunity to also enjoy these events in the Bluegrass Region. Due to the thoroughbred racing and the numerous other equine related events, all the hotels in and around Lexington are in high demand during this time period.

Therefore, we urge you to make hotel reservations early and benefit from the special rates the organizing committee has been able to negotiate with a number of area hotels.

Hotel rooms are no longer available at the Hyatt or Hilton Downtown Lexington at the special rate.
If you are still in need of a hotel room, please contact Ms. Mickenzie Fugal ( She will try to assist you as best possible.
