The Ike Hamilton Expo Center, or “The Ike”, as it has come to be called was designed with comfort and convenience of sports competitors in mind. With a convenient location; great rates; professional service; and facilities created with the competitor in mind; West Monroe’s Ike Hamilton Expo Center is the ideal location for all types shows. It is great for western equestrian events; livestock shows and sales; bike and remote-control car races; trade shows; and so much more!
Conveniently located just off Interstate 20, the Ike is surrounded by amenities. The facility boasts 7 acres under one roof. Promoters and competitors alike approve of the professional staff and reasonable rental rates. They also appreciate that all parts of the facility; from the cow barn to the arenas, are all under one roof. That means rain is never a deterrent. Finally, out of town guests will be pleased to find numerous hotels and restaurants less than a mile from The Ike.
The climate-controlled main arena has a floor measuring 190 x 300 and handicap accessible seating for 2,900. Add over 500 stalls with electricity (with an additional 200 temporary stalls available), an upgraded outdoor cover arena, cow barn, 180 fully functioning RV slots, pens, warm-up areas, and wash racks you have the perfect location for any equestrian, cattle or dirt racing competition. Throw in the meeting rooms and catering services and you have the perfect spot for any heavy equipment training or trade shows.
The calendar of events is ever-changing with updated information so please check back with us often. You’ll be surprised at all the fun, family-friendly outings available at the Ike and many of the events are open free to the public. We will see you soon!
