Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Parking can be a bit confusing, but once we were shown where to go, it was great. The facility was excellent for what it was used for. AC was comfortable and not too cold, it was clean, well maintained, and the food was fabulous.

We attend the Women's Expo every year at the convention center. We enjoy it as there is so much room for vendors and no one is cramped. My company also had a convention there with a formal dinner. The service was excellent!

How these people hustled and provided a wedding service, bar service and a 5 Star dinner was unbelievable. But BELIEVE IT, they were sooo professional and the food was FANTASTIC !

This place thinks that they are the Convention Center of the 3rd Best Place to Live in the U.S.A. However, if the management would travel a little bit, they are always OVERPRICED in the different events. I wish they would see other convention centers around the country to try to imitate them. Not very impressive.

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.
