The place to go to plan a vacation, hundreds of people to talk to from all over the world. Also can visit Customs and Border Protection booth and learn about Global Entry, TSA PreCheck, and other programs that get you thru the airport faster.

Attended a Radix Dance Competition and Convention at the Stephens. Easy parking, big facilities, and close to hotels and restaurants. Much easier and cheaper than going downtown to McCormick Place.

I had the pleasure of working in this facility during the recent Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show. A more delightful and expansive facility would be hard to find, the location is excellent with the Center con reacted to several nearby hotels via suspended and heated walkways. I look forward to returning next November for the 2016 MCACN show.

My sons and I attended the MCACN show held at the Donald Stevens Center November 2015. The building was clean and exceptionally well maintained. This building hosts multi events at the same time and is well laid out to handle the traffic.

I went there for an accessory show. It's a spacious building with a great show room. The employees are friendly.

This place is HUGE and there are taxis and buses coming in and out daily. Nice on the inside with an escalator and multiple conference rooms.

No hassles about building or equipping our booth. Other venues have strict union rules. My only complaint is the food service. Poor food and very expensive with long line ups.

This is so much better than traveling to downtown Chicago. All the amenities are provided, area hotels and restaurants are great and the airport is less than 10 minutes away.

Great space for exhibiting at CWIEME. The Donald Stephens Convention Centre was very clean and extremely large.
