Too overwhelming for me and not the up close and personal feel. Valet parking was available since i am handicapped. But i was exhausted just getting to the location.

I have been to the Convention Center many times & it is a well run, clean, efficient meeting venue. Both smaller rooms & larger banquet facilities are certainly adequate for Columbia.

Outstanding service, plenty of parking, a fine location and a terrific team to take care of your event. There are large rooms and small rooms. There is an ATM, there is an information center to learn about other places to visit in the city. Very accommodating as far as audiovisual equipment as well. Rotary Club of Five Points meets there...

Liked how they had con set up and the space to move around. The outside terrace was lovely and the weather was perfect for hanging out there. Didn't like the intimidating guards! They were everywhere, staring!

Nice venue. Everything is clean, the decor is pleasing and modern, the bathrooms are clean and there are plenty of stalls. There are lots of seating areas outside of the meeting and ball rooms. The temperature was perfect. Plenty of parking, nicely landscaped. The staff are very helpful and nice. Nice desserts, beef sandwich was good, boxed lunch was blah.

Note: If you put the advertised address for the visitor center into your GPS, you get the building across the street. Once into the visitor center, however, the prize is the walking map with descriptions of sites. If there's not a conference going on in the center, you can park in that lot free. The parking lot across the street... More

Nice, large convention center where several events can occur at the same time. Clean, light pleasant environment except that I usually about freeze with the temperature even though I layer and take extra warm jackets!

The food could be better, though. I've been to several catered events at this convention center, and I haven't been too pleased with the in-house catering here. Otherwise, it is a great place for any kind of reception, trade show, or beer festival (my favorite) that you can imagine. I love the architecture of this building. I do NOT love... More
