NYWA Wrestling Tournament

Great to have the skyway to parking. We didn't have to lug our jackets into the tournament. Nice to have less to carry in and hang on to. Great place for the tournament.

I've spoken at this center several times and it's always great. Nice facility, nice staff, and the view outside is beautiful. Easy access through the long tunnels. You feel like a hamster but at least you don't have to go into the elements.

Nice place but could definitely use updating. Looking forward to the changes that are to come as there is so much that will happen there every year.

Had a great time at the concert for Little Big Town. Was very impressed with the Mayo Civic Center. It is a smaller venue that adds to the concert. Loved it.

We toured this really fantastic Christmas tree show which was a nice respite from hospital visits and it was so convenient to be connected to the clinics.

very wide place, very good for conventions, a little disorganised so it's a bit difficult to find the place where you're headed, nice garden outside

Attended conference with 400+ people. Excellent facilities. Wifi was very good. Meals served in adjacent rooms was very acceptable. Good acoustics and visibility. Other than they kept it a little too cold, that was better than being hot. Would attend there again.
