Space to spare

This space has some interesting features and nice, open common areas. Location is ideal with plenty of parking. Can't say enough about the staff... if we had to ask for anything... read more

I was in town for a convention and the Benton Center was one of the venues. It was conveniently located to the hotel where I was staying (Marriott) and it's proximity to eateries was great. Great place for any event, large or small.

Recently attended the Dino Quest event here. Had not been at this convention center in years. It is showing its age and wear and tear. Convenient location but you will have to pay for city parking.

Went to a fundraiser dinner at the Benton recently, and good to see it's still being used for many functions. Parking is convenient in the deck across the street. The dinner served was very good considering it was an event for almost 1000 people. Servers were very nice and efficient.

This is a pretty standard convention center, and performs best for large events. It is very convenient to all of the downtown amenities; hotels, restaurants, entertainment. Plenty of parking right across the street, accessible through an enclosed walkway.

Nothing special, nothing unique. It's a big hall with large spaces, spaces that can be divided into smaller spaces, restrooms, escalators, etc. It's just a convention center. Tunnels from the Marriott through the Embassy Suites make both hotels convenient options.

We took our daughter to the college fair and that was a mess. For the people that attended the place was miserable crowd and too hot. The air condition was either turned way down or broken the same as last year. The building is old and in need of updating

This place is nice for very large events. We usually bring 700-900 or more every two months and it is a nice venue to have a very large meeting. Building seems to be open most of the time when events are booked. Parking across the street and a weatherized walkway across the street so traffic is not an issue!!!

Great place for a Conference. Prices at the snack place was a little pricy. The eating places where near by and good. It was not hard to find
