We go every year for Animazement and will be going also for Wizard World as well in 2015. William Shatner, Jason David Frank, Elvira and James Marsters are scheduled as guests so far with more being added! But I digress.. It is certainly the perfect venue for the large conventions in the area. Very modern. Nicely designed with elevators to... More

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
