I have been to a dozen events at the Charlotte Convention Center and always have a good time there. Parking is easy, food is reasonable and the layout of the venue is easy walking. No shortage of quality restaurants and hotels nearby

Charlotte's Convention Center has ALMOST everything it needs-- It's an attractive architectural feature in Uptown Charlotte, has ample meeting space, a great food court for visitors and knowledgeable, friendly staff. The only thing missing is an attached hotel. If you're in Charlotte for a conference, trade show or convention, I hope your meeting space is at the Charlotte Convention Center.... More

I have been at the Charlotte convention Center many, many times for all kinds of meetings, seminars and trade shows. The place is very modern, clean and well arranged. The are several good food places inside. If you are planning or attending a show at this place, you will not be disappointed.....unless the seminar or the lecture was bad. LOL

We recently attended Heroes Con and thought the convention center was pretty nice. The con wasn't nearly as crowded as some that we have attended but the line out the door to buy tickets in the morning was pretty ridiculous. I'm glad we bought passes ahead of time. The most disappointing aspect was the limited food options with huge lines.... More

I've been to a few convention centers, but I've never enjoyed one as much as Charlotte's. I had the pleasure of attending HeroesCon this year and I was so very impressed. They were extremely well organized, the lanes were spacious so I didn't feel crowded, the entire are was neat (including the bathrooms), and maybe it's just the natural acoustics... More

Liked--different dining options, kept the AC cranked in the heat of summer so we weren't too hot. Disliked--no convention parking so you're stuck finding parking in downtown Charlotte, which is not an easy or affordable feat.

The Charlotte Convention Center is very clean. The rooms are large and kept fairly cool, so I would recommend bringing a sweater or hoodie to wear while inside. There is a food court and a Starbucks. Prices at Starbucks were surprisingly not overpriced, they were pretty average compared to other Starbucks.

PARKING: First, in order to find out the rates at the NASCAR Hall adjoining the center one must drive in and commit to a $3 charge just to see the sign. THEN, it is double the adjoining parking lots. Had the one just north of the center not had a BROKEN ATM and BROKEN processing unit we would not have... More
