My son and I went to the Boat Show. He is active military and I am retired, 25.5 yr. Showed our Military ID and they gave us each a complimentary pass, and thanked us for our service to the country. Very nice gesture and we appreciated it.

This is my second time to the convention center. It's clean, well maintained, the information center is super helpful, and the food for our event was absolutely delicious! Easy walk to the hotels we stayed at. Love the skywalk connection!

The convention center is clean and spacious. The food - as in all convention centers is expensive - but the quality isn't terrible. I wish there were more food places in/around the convention center for options.

I took my son and daughter to the Wizard World Comic-Con and to All-Star Fan Fest which came through the Minneapolis Convention Center. The space was huge, so you never felt claustrophobic. Bathrooms were easy to find and plentiful. You're right by downtown so you can walk outside or via the skyway to close parking and nice restaurants. The only... More

We came for the USA Volleyball Jr. Nationals and had a great time. The center is smaller and older but for the most part, it was fine. The only real downside was that because it was smaller, the courts were spread out everywhere throughout the building. Transportation to and from the center was just "ok". The light rail in Minneapolis... More

This is a very large conference center, but the staff really made it feel very personal. Everyone from the janitorial staff, to the wait staff and even the security staff. Everyone said hello, made eye contact when they wished you to have a good day, and generally just smiled like they liked their job. It made the conference even better.
