This convention center is really nice. The rooms are big and spacious. Lots of convenient escalators to get up and down. And plenty of parking. Only downside is the confusing parking deck you have move around to find a place to park.

I was there last week for a conference and was very impressed with the entire facility. The were a lot of rooms available for breakout sessions, a huge exhibition hall and the food served was excellent.

Spent 5 days in and out of the facilities. Nice and new for sure. Washrooms are accessible with lots of stalls. Big meeting rooms and good chairs. Purchased a cranberry juice during break, $3 for a tiny bottle!

The convention center is fine but not much going on in the area during the daytime when I was there. Couldn't find any nice cafes nearby, just a Starbucks that was super crowded in the mornings. Not even a little market around.

Easy access and large jam rooms. Convention Center nicely positioned between Mariott and Red Hat Arena. Many good food choices nearby. No 24 hour open stores and many favorite food places close after lunch.

William Shatner, Jason David Frank, Elvira and James Marsters are scheduled as guests so far with more being added! But I digress..

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.
