What an ugly building. It looks like a 1950s airline terminal. Inside is attractive with art, but not user friendly.

Incredible customer service. This is a wonderful venue for almost any event. Food service is great! The best place in Columbia for a meeting, luncheon, or convention. They pay attention to the little things (the details that really make a difference).

Attended the CVMSDC Business Opportunity Event early August of this year. The event was very well planned with cudos going to both the staff of the CVMSDC and the Convention Center staff as well. Rooms were perfectly set for the various meeting, the luncheon was excellent in both food as well as the serving. The exhibit hall was well lighted... More

As a veteran vendor and speaker, I have never been to a convention center where the concession provider refused to open during an event. All 100 vendors and hundreds of attending families were left with no food or drink options within the center during a 3 day event. On top of that, the "event staff" scolded vendors for bringing in...

I assisted in the coordination of over 400 people attending a one-day conference here. The staff is not personal enough, never checked on us the entire day. You have sub-contractors for every need which makes coordination difficult. Staff - okay.
