This center is perfect for downtown. It is not only fairly new but the general surrounding is clean, easy to find and serves any large occasion or event.

Well kept convention center, rest rooms were very clean and anyone working at the center was extremely friendly. Weather was great, large choice of food vendors. Hopefully Good Guys will hold it here again next year....Charlotte was not near as nice.

The venue is great if you are going to be in Raleigh for an event. The only issue that I had was parking (but that is the issue in all of downtown Raleigh)

The convention center gets some really good family events and Comic Con is a great example of one. It is organized, clean and the convention center employees are always really nice.

This was the first Comic Con in Raleigh and it was incredible! The Convention Center was an excellent location and all the functions were successfully spaced out in various rooms.

My family, friends, and I traveled to the RCC to attend NC first Wizard World Comic Con, and had a wonderful experience there. We've always enjoyed any and all events we've attended at the RCC. The staff there is super helpful, its very modern and clean, and a nice place to spend hours attending events at. There's plenty of parking... More

As a trade show vendor I found this convention center to be very well run and maintained. The only drawback was finding the service entrance area which was below ground level and not clearly marked with signs.

Wow it was really big. We parked on a side street since it is free on the weekends so we didn't have to pay $10 to park in the garage. There were a ton of train set ups and it was pretty busy. Definately the place to be if you were under the age of 6 or over the age... More
