Plenty of parking, both covered and open lots. Attached Sheraton Hotel and more hotels very near. During the time we were there, they had 4 different events happening and none interfered with the others. Needs more dining opportunities. There was plenty of room and restrooms were clean and plenty.

Second year at the convention and it was still rocking! The yard area has and always will be one of my favorite part of the convention center here (a lot of cosplayers/people hang out with how awesome the weather was for us) Only complaint was it kinda felt a little "disorganized", but I still had a blast here :)

They have certain unique event once in awhile, but never that nice. I like some trade show or gun show. I don't care for the location because its never easy to find it.

This convention center has room arrangements of various sizes to fit your group, whether it be large vendor sessions, general meetings, or break-out groups. The proximity to the Sheraton Hotel makes it so convenient for large groups meeting over a period of days.

This place certainly has a "wow" factor. Very clean facility perfect for large groups. I brought a team here for the National Speech & Debate competition...very impressed!

I was there for a conference of over 600 people. With two meals served the same day, both featured chicken that was barely edible. The servers had no idea when to clear places. People holding their forks and chewing we're having plates pulled out from under them, and those who had laid their forks and knives across their plates had... More

I went to a show at the convention center and I was impressed with how clean the entire facility was even with the volume of people. They did a nice job of managing traffic flow through how things were set out too.
