Enjoyed a three day convention at the BJCC

Every year we have a religious convention sometime around June-July at the BJCC. We have never had any problems. The staff is friendly. I wish there was more parking available.

The facility is large and clean. Several times we have been to events at BJCC for musicals to Leggo Exbihit. We usually park in the attached parking deck attached and walk just a small distance to the area we need. New and exciting grills, bars and great places to eat in the area.

The facility is a impressive collection of meeting spaces, from Convention halls, to theaters to Arena's. I had experience in the Arena, it is a nice place but rather small for today's standards and was built many years ago, not large enough to host major sporting events, like a major athletic conference event but smaller basketball or athletic event work...

At times, parking is hard to find, but otherwise it's an amazing place. You can do all sorts of things here from concerts to festivals. I love coming to Christmas Village here. I have been to a couple of concerts here, which were amazing.

This complex is home to many various events, which makes it a great venue for anything imaginable. However, because it is less event specific, the seats for events such as Broadway plays and concerts are not necessarily ideal the farther you get from the "good" seats. My advice would be to spend the extra money on more desirable seating whenever... More

The BJCC is a good concert venue. Some acts can't bring their full stage production due to the building not being able to support it which is disappointing. My biggest complaint is that this arena has continental seating for almost every show! Those tickets seem to never be on sale unless at scalper prices. Sometimes they're also not on the... More

Concerts, dance recitals and conventions. The place is large but dealing with the traffic/parking can be a pain. The security guards are very helpful.

The concert was amazing - incredible - and I wouldn't change the fact that we drove from Florida. We had tickets for Tampa but the event was cancelled due to the Stanley Cup playoffs in the same arena. We were already headed for a weekend in Atlanta, so what was 2 more hours to see Garth freakin Brooks? This venue... More

We came for the Garth Brooks concert on June 13. The arena was fairly easy to find and there seemed to be a good deal of parking. We paid $20 to park in the premium parking lot which was very close to the entrance. Once inside there were several varieties of vendors with different types of food and drink. We... More
