We have gone to a few exhibits here and have always been satisfied. It seems to have a lot going on, with people always entering/leaving when we drive by from the ball park or from some of the shopping. It's nice, clean, and centrally located.

Excellent working with the Event managers, dinner service staff is so wonderful... but the food... ew! Worst ever every time I've had an event dinner. I wish they could do something about this.. then we would have the PERFECT convention center!

why this would be an attraction. It is fine for an event but I would never come to this location for any other reasons. Indoor which is a must in the midwest with the bipolar weather but not a destination in itself.

Just a very nice place to have a convention. Plenty of space for large gatherings (1,000's), or for smaller room-sized events. Hotels are connected, there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Located in downtown, it is also right by Parkview Field. Top notch building.

Our company had a black tie at the Convention center. The prices were reasonable, the food was excellent, taste was good, and presentation was nice. The prime rib was tender and done just right. The service was average, but the servers were attentive. Thanks for a great event.

There was a National Dance Competition going on and it was FREE so we went and had a good time. This was just like the show on TV called Dance Moms with Abbey. We did see a lot of them Dance Moms and enjoyed watching the different styles of dancing

They thought of everything and kept things moving. Nice and clean. The ticket booth were open to purchase tickets for other events, which was a plus as well. Bathrooms were clean for as many people that were there.

The Convention Center was right accross the street from our hotel which was wonderful and convenant. If you did not want to walk out side you could also take the cat walks to center. The building had many bathrooms and was well maintained.

Numerous visits for meetings and conventions. Huge facility can accommodate large and small groups at the same time. Located within the Hilton and across from the Courtyard. Easy parking and walking downtown.
