Excellent event! An enjoyable evening. Great atmosphere. Lots of fun and it seemed as though everyone was enjoying themselves. The 104 staff was friendly and accessible to the crowd. Great music and entertainment!

The new Convention Center is a very nice convention facility. It has all the amenities, easy parking and it is surrounded by interesting and diverse eating and entertainment venues.

i was there for a tattoo convention and the space was very harshly lit and didn't seem conducive to anything other than an airplane hanger. the bathrooms were lovely though and very clean.

Contemporary convention center by modern day standards. Their staff handled our group of 1,500 for the main presentations, break-out rooms and main group and/or small group meals. Lots of glass, which allowed a lot of natural light!

Visited recently for a weekend convention. The center was clean, modern and spacious. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. Loved that they had a Starbucks on site. Easy to access the convention center from anywhere in Downtown Hartford by Dash Shuttle or by scenic walkways and pedestrian bridges. Only one complaint - there weren't many restaurants or businesses in the... More

As you can tell from the ginormous number of reviews this place is a real head spinner. It was supposed to make Hartford a destination city. OOPS! The place was designed to fit into the area allocated, not placed in an area big enough to support everything a convention center requires. It is poorly designed for the unloading of equipment...

Huge place accommodates several concurrent conferences. Parking is overwhelming. Parking at venue only if you have no other option. If you work nearby, park downtown and just walk. A/c is perfect. Acoustics is good for rooms with about 400 table seating. There's a bell reminder for the start of sessions Food selection (coffee, cookies, breakfast pastries, lunches) is well served... More
