The facility was clean and accessible. However the halls were very cold. The internet availability was horrible both LTE service from AT&T and the in house wifi service.

Beleive me when you have 10 000 gilrs at one place, restrooms can be very messy. Not here. Always clean, always full of toilet paper. This was the perfect plac for a cheerleading competition

This convention center is HUGE! My husband participated in an event there while myself and two young children watched. Quite a hike from one end to the other so wear your walking shoes. We enjoyed meals thru the day in the food court which had a lot of options. Didn't have to look far for drink machies or restrooms. Everywhere... More

Would strongly recommend this place for corporate events. The place has a very clean feel to it, and it seems to be pretty new. Audio was great as well. We had our corporate event here and even in the back of the room I had no problem with the audio or visual. Catering services were also good. Again cleanliness of... More

Attended a Cheer competition with my daughter which took up several halls. The place is big, huge even. It was not difficult to find a place to park and walking from the garage was not a harassing event - we parked in a garage southwest of the convention center. There is plenty to do, see and eat at and around... More

This place is so massive. We enjoyed the festivities at the NHL ALL-STAR weekend. The food at a party we attended was excellent. They have a food court downstairs and a few little shops. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The restrooms were very clean. It is connected to a few hotels so you can walk right through.

My granddaughter had a gymnastics meet at the convention center and it was part of the Arnold Classic being held at the same venue. We were packed in there - trying to get to pay for our passes and then trying to get to the entrance to the gymnastics area was like a herd of buffalo, we could hardly move.... More

Competed in the Arnold Amatuer Bodybuilding show again this year and had a great time. The best layout and run show I have ever competed in. I was not pleased with how busy the expo was on saturday. It was impossible to move in the sea of people and extremely uncomfortable, not to mention how unsafe exiting would be if... More

This place has almost 2 million square feet of space I was told, and after being to a couple of weekend shows their I don't doubt it. It is centrally located to downtown and to the Short North, which is very convenient.

Here for a national Cheer competition. Very nice facility and pretty clean. The food service serving fresh made fruit smoothies was a treat. Bleachers had individual chairs with backs. As most convention centers lighting was not great for optimal photography. Sound was good and you could see fine. Location is close to several great hotels and abundant choices for food... More
