Our organization held our convention here and the staff of the convention center did not disappoint. They handled over 11,000 guests like pro's, if there were any glitches they did not show. Great job!!!

The convention center was the site of my sorority's convention of over 11,000 members and their staff handled it like pros. Everyone was gracious, welcoming and professional. I can't say enough about how much these folks went all out to make sure we had a successful convention. Kudos to everyone at the CCC!!

Clean and spacious. The second floor layout can be quite confusing due to the building's "L" shape. There is a food court and a Starbucks.

This is one of the best converntion centers I have ever used. It has both very large spaces and numerous smaller rooms that make virtually any mix of group sizes can be accommodated. Staff is very pleasant and very willing to help out. The food service is well above average and cost effective if you are concerned about costs. The... More

I attended the Volleyball Tournament to see my niece and her team play. Many different teams with young ladies from all the surrounding areas participated. I shopped and found some great buys.

As always great location very organized. This is our 3rd year in a row. My only concern..open more of the food windows during this event. Waiting in line for 25 minutes was not fun!

Being right downtown, the location was great for our event. Unique layout, with the different arenas, ballrooms, the rail system inside, and access to NASCAR without having to go outside was great. There are several places to eat including Starbucks, Bojangles, and Einstein Bagels which were all good. They might consider adding a few more choices for food purchase. We... More

Attended exotic car shows. Very large, 2 story venue. Many topics to discover. Wear waking shoes, especially if they are showing something you are very interested in.

Located in the center of Charlotte, the location couldn't be anymore convenient. There are numerous hotels within walking distance. The layout is quite unique. It goes over the both the local rail system and a road, making it necessary to go up and down a lot of stairs/escalators to get to the different sections. If you're planning a conference here,...

Rooms and Halls of varying sizes to conduct parallel sessions and meeting rooms. Excellent location for a conference of size 750 persons. More Restaurants inside the convention centre would help.
