I was at a convention and this place was more than big enough for our group which numbered about 200. We shared the space with the Predators and Wild Hog Convention, which was kind of bizarre. The break out rooms were nice and were well stocked with chairs and equipment. There was only a push cart available in the lobby... More

This building is very dated. It has been well maintained but certainly could use some updates. Your only food option was one cart and when they ran out that was it! Went for a large student event and ended up buying a cooler to put our own snacks in after the food cart ran out.

The convention center is clean and modern enough, the rooms used for seminars are absolutely freezing. The escalator up was broken all weekend. Food area is not run efficiently. Staff or security tended to congregate in corners and it was a little disconcerning to say the least. I don't recommend walking around alone.

Great space, great staff, bathrooms are large and updated. Overall a clean facility with modern touches and lots of space. We fit over 2,500 here, but there are also spaces for small parties, too.

Plenty or room, comfortable, plenty to see outside. It was easy to find, beautiful surroundings. Take your camera! Everything within walking distance. we especially liked the suspension bridge, the outdoor sculpture is awesome. The ceremony was very satisfying, organized, and a fitting end to two years of hard work. My son graduated with honors and is packing. The guest speaker... More

Staff is friendly and helpful, building is open and airy with lots of natural light in the common areas. Air conditioning works almost too well.

We had a catered meal at the WCC because there was not room in the Hilton for a party of this size. No problems. It is right by the HIlton so we were able to walk to the event.

Awesome building. Perfect for our needs. Impressive, but not over the top and charges reasonable rates.

There is not enough parking for the size of the venue. It is inconvenient to park on the street several blocks away.
