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

We came to the Benton Center for a church conference, and the facility was very nice. It is right in the heart of downtown W-S close to major hotels and restaurants. It was very clean and the staff was friendly.

Had quite a nice lunch served during a convention session. Bathrooms were convenient and clean. Great space. Escalators were off early in the morning, odd.

The Benton Center is a great venue for conferences. Location is good and easily accessible. Bordered by two major chain hotels---Marriott and Embassy Suites.

The staff are great to work with when planning events at the convention center. Parking and lodging are convenient and there are many great restaurants within walking distance. The facility is easy to navigate and has great open spaces.

Enjoyed the Christmas for the City Event, but the venue really needs to be updated. Decor is outdated.

The convention center is nice and very easy to access. I like that the layout is wide open and not cramped. I think that they, could do better on food selection and pricing. Overall a nice place to have a convention.
