I was at a basketball tournament and the place was well run and the tournament ran like clockwork. Great location with plenty of hotels and places to eat nearby.

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.
