The Raleigh Convention Center in downtown Raleigh, NC is impressive. It can be divided into two huge convention halls, each of which are adequate for most events. Parking was available in a building next door and the artwork on the outside is incredible. There is also an amphitheater nearby, which may be a mixed blessing. a loud event could bleed... More

We had a great time at the Lego Kids Fest. The facilities were excellent. All the parking garages close to the convention center made for easy access to the center.

We've always enjoyed coming here for events, especially the annual International Fest. Spacious, clean, and easily navigable even if you're bringing lil ones. And the location is awesome too. Very close to downtown Raleigh!

This was our first time at the venue, we came from out of town for a cheerleading event. What a nice space plenty of room with modern look. Large clean restrooms. Friendly staff, we had a good experience Raleigh should be proud of the asset.

Very nice facility. Plenty of escalators and elevators. We were here for 3 days. The security people were all fire fighters from local departments, that made it more enjoyable.

The convention center is a very nice and functional location for medium/large events. The organization aspects worked very well and also the food at the catering events qualitatively very high.

I have been attending a convention every year in May at the Raleigh, NC convention center (Animazement) for the past five years. I can say with certainty that it is a joy to attend and I doubt there could be a more suitable venue for the event. The Raleigh convention center is huge. There is adequate space for panels, artists,... More

I had a convention to attend there and it was very hard for me to get there and find the actual room in which my convention was being held. I ended up at the Marriott twice I think and couldn't find my convention. The staff was not helpful they were actually a hindrance to me finding my event. What I... More

My cousin's high school graduation was held here. There was enough space, security was great, and the building was very nice.

My first time at the convention center was yesterday. I attended my nephew's graduation. There is ample space for graduation, wedding reception, car/bike show, etc. The staff was friendly and helpful. The convention center is located downtown Raleigh across from the Red Hat Amphitheater, the Marriott and Sheraton. They have public parking that charges by the hour.
