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

For the past 8 years, have been here probably 11-12 venues. All have been great, good faciliies etc. Real reviews should be for the organizers as opposed to the physical faciliyt

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
