Expo officially becomes Appalachian Wireless Arena
Wednesday, June 05, 2019
The East Kentucky Expo Center’s new name is now official.
At an event in downtown Pikeville, the East Kentucky Expo Center was officially christened “Appalachian Wireless Arena.” The renaming is the first in the venue’s near decade-and-a-half history and became official with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the arena’s plaza. Community Trust Bank, which has been involved with the Expo Center since its construction, was also announced as the new sponsor of the facility’s box office, and a ceremonial ribbon was also cut commemorating Community Trust’s sponsorship.
