Went here for the first time for the home and garden show. I was very surprised at how big the place is and how well laid out. There were a lot of people there but it's big enough it wasn't an issue. There's plenty of parking and a drop off lane out front. Nice facility.

I attend meetings here once or twice a year. My experience is that there could be some improvements. Being a short person, I find the chairs don't fit me well. The heating and air conditioning are noisy and drafty. On the plus side, there are ample restrooms and indoor parking for handicapped, which I do use.

The Convention Center provided a marvelous site for quartet and chorus contests with large screen views of center stage so people anywhere it the room could see very well.

I attended the KC Regional Quilt Show. The Overland Park Convention Center had ample and close parking. The building looks relatively new and well maintained. It was easy to find. I would characterize the overall experience as quite positive.
