I go to a conference at the DECC at least 2 times a year. The main entrance and rooms are well maintained, but every year I am shocked at the horrible conditions of the restrooms near the exhibitor halls. Every time there is "wetness" on the floor of the women's bathroom (since it is all wet by the toilets and... More

It is fairly easy to access the DECC, both parking and getting inside. I've been to several UMD graduation ceremonies here and it works well.

We had a pasta lunch served, and it was very good. The facility is clean and well kept. Meeting rooms were comfortable and easy to hear speakers.

The parking is great. Well organized with flagmen and women guiding you to your stall. The walk to th theater is a little long but not over taxing. The interior of the facility is first rate and the seating is comfortable. Not a bad seat in the house. Would go back to this facility in a heartbeat.

Saw George Carlin there several years ago. Sound system great, seating comfortable. Also saw dance company featuring Swan Lake. For an area this far north, lots of opportunities to see/hear high quality entertainment.

Our daughter choice this location to hold her wedding and what a great choice it turned out to be. Overlooking the Duluth Harbor it was a perfect location for a perfect wedding. Service and food was superb here. Many, many compliments were given to us for having it held here at the DECC.

I suspect that the DECC, along with the skyway and downtown Duluth were really eye-popping thirty years ago. Now, all seems very run down. The shelter would be fantastic if needing to move from hotel to the DECC for a winter convention, but I would probably pick going to a convention in someplace with nicer winter weather if I had...

Nice place for an event. I was there for the Grandmas Marathon and Expo. Had plenty of room for exhibitors and plenty of places to park. Parking was $5 for all day. It is walking distance to canal park and worth the $5. I'm sure there is free parking somewhere in the city, but from what I could find everything... More
