We recently attended the US Finals Cheerleading Competition at this venue. It is large and divides into "Halls" nicely. The acoustics and lighting were impressive. I liked the easy access to the second floor for break out areas and vendors. Easy traffic flow. Restrooms were plentiful and located at strategic locations.

Was here for a 2 day volleyball competition. The facilities are modern and very well kept. All of the employees I encountered where cheerful and a pleasure to deal with. The second floor has nice chairs to relax on and gets little use, so if you need some quiet time, head to the second floor. The 4th floor has a... More

Was there for a cheer competition. This place is also huge. Beautiful. We were restricted to staying on the 1st floor. Best convention center I have been to thus far. They had stadium seating and there was an area for us to go to, to cheer for our team. Then we were moved to another room for the awards. Free... More

Came here for an AAU basketball tournament. It was well managed. The staff at the ticket office and snack bar were very friendly and polite. The place was very clean. The parking was plentiful and convenient. I found it very cold inside but I suppose that was for the benefit of the players. Overall a very good experience.

Attended convention Center for a Wrestling Tournament. Bathrooms & eating choices were very good. Food choices much better than the Excel in St. Paul, MM & prices less expensive. They did not check purses or backpacks like most event centers. It was well organized, but did not have specific areas for wrestlers to wait for their next match like the... More

I have been there to pick up my bib number for shamrock half-marathon. The place works very well for huge events like that. I didnt use the parking lot but apparently there are enough holes.

Parking for this location is not good. I would recommend expanding the parking lot by building up a parking ramp with multiple catwalk or sub terrain access for pedestrians. Traffic that is not part of the convention center event get angry drivers and is dangerous.

This place is huge and can hold hundreds of craft vendors. Worth a trip, especially for the Christmas show! Lots of parking and good food available.

We had a very successful Green Schools conference here. Many thanks for the free wi-fi (a bit slow but that's okay). Nice facilities!
