The convention center staff were very attentive and very nice. The facility was nice, I would say that they are in need of some up grading. I loved the food court and the area around the convention center had lots to eat. We didn't blow the budget on expensive food.

The GCCC is a large venue that was easily capable of handling the volleyball tournament. On the plus side, the convention center is connected by sky bridge to three hotels and a food court. The food selection without leaving the GCCC main building was pretty slim. But, the food court a sky bridge walk away provided a good meal choice.... More

If you like car shows, they have thousands! A little pricy $20 each to get in but they had so many cars, you couldn't see them all in a day! Racing going on, food, vendors......it was enjoyable.

This convention center is a little dated, but the facilities are nice. However, the staff did not keep restrooms clean and there was constantly no toilet paper or paper towels in the restroom. I realize it is difficult when there are large crowds, but this simply cannot happen. Garages were convenient for parking and food court in building provided dining... More

This is a great place for expos and large conventions. I went to the 10 TV health expo and had a great time. There is a hotel attached to the convention center and several places to eat too.

I liked the food court and the space for Cons. Great place to play many tabletop games, and have a great time eating and playing with friends

Having been @ the Southern Baptist Convention for 37 years, this building was the easiest for us to get around in. Parking was convenient, despite rain each day. These convention sites are huge, but this one was much more manageable as we are getting older.

We were in town for a convention. The center is well- laid out with lots of places to gather. It was quite cold inside and the chairs are not especially comfortable.

Horrible sound, lighting and a lack of food choices leaves this huge facility feeling like an abandoned warehouse. tut tut what a shame NOT the place for a graduation!

Since Vet's was torn down, we had to find a new venue for the Irish Family Reunion on St. Patrick's Day. Battelle Hall in the GCCC was just the ticket. Large room with great acoustics. All the bands sounded good in there--loud enough but you could still talk to the person beside you. We had to park around the corner... More
