I was there yesterday for an awards luncheon for about 450 people. The tables looked beautiful, the salads were cold and crisp, and the entrees served steaming hot. Everything was very tasty, I looked around, no one left much on their plates. Quite an accomplishment for a huge group!

Very nice place to hold a convention, competion, or large event. We attended the Dance KAR dance competition and there were several other events being held at the same time, there was plenty of parking, the facilities were clean, and at no point did it ever feel over crowded.

Attended a family member's graduation ceremony. Venue did a good job, seating, sound, vision lines all good. Reception afterwards was nice; food good, seating seemed minimal, but it actually seemed to work out. Saw very few people having to stand unable to get a table. Probably should have put out a few more...there was ample room. Not a five star... More

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.
