We were here for the Volleyball Nationals Competition summer of 2014. The facility was nice but I would like to see more healthy food options as there were many times that we could not leave for a meal outside the convention center. Some nicer sit-down options would be great!

The convention center is well designed and maintained. It is nice that there are several sport events held at the same time in the Convention Center. Parking is located across the street underneath a park.

The center of events for recent national Senior Olympics. Mostly good local transportation but event starting on the July 4th holiday weekend so local transportation on reduced service and not many choices of restaurants open in area.

This is your average convention center. Very large space with plenty of room for any size convention or show. I was there attending an industry trade show. The biggest issue I had was with taxis. There was a taxi stand outside the main entrance, but on two occasions there were no taxis so had to call direct. A nit but... More

This is an exceptional venue. It is large enough to accommodate almost any sized group. The food was very good. Sound systems, lighting, and IT necessities were equally outstanding. I was very impressed with the Center. Kudos to the City of Minneapolis for having the foresight to build this kind of facility.

Pretty plain. We go here every year for the Boat Show. The building is hugh and several venues can be going on at the same time. It looks nice from the outside but very plain inside.

Just finished attending the Fuel Ethanol Workshop at the convention center and the center is top notch. Easy access to hotels and in the heart of downtown. Was an easy walk from the Crown Plaza on 6th.

This is a huge place. To save time, be sure to check maps that are posted throughout the building. Also, parking is not cheap but as expected, there are many nearby lots. If the weather is bad, try to park in one of the underground lots north of the convention center that allow you to use an overhead walk-way to... More
