The convention center was nice and roomy with large areas which did not get overcrowded. The temperature was kept comfortably. The problem was that when it came time to eat, the only choices were a Starbucks, concession stand, and Bo Jangles. Because we were on a time schedule, there was a limited amount of time to get food and the... More

We have been to several conferences here - easy to get to - bathrooms always clean - easy to walk to places to eat or just to get fresh air.

The convention centre has good facilities and is on the west side of the Uptown area. Easy walk to local hotels. On site coffee and food but pricy as always for conference venues.

We parked at the parking garage near The Nascar mueseum and it was a pretty good walk to the large trade show area. I am sure there is closer parking but we couldn't find it.

Charlotte has well planned this facility. It is located in the center of the downtown. A hub for the rail line is located inside the facility. Close to many hotels, restaurants, museums and the banking centers. Meeting rooms accommodate a wide range of space needs. Highly recommend you consider Charlotte for your next meeting. And don't forget, the Charlotte airport... More
