Very good equipped, modern and convenient Convention Center. The heart of the City. Good parking. Connected with Crown Plaza Hotal by above ground pass.

very dated but clean. Hall where we were was cold and drafty. Restrooms were clean and food court was good. Again, everyone on staff was exceptionally nice and helpful.

booked an event here and the AC went out, there was a problem with the drainage and water poured from the ceiling on top of paying attendees, the escalators failed inspection the week prior to the event because they didn't make repairs that the KNEW needed to be done, and the LIST GOES ON!!!

They actually have debutante balls here? That's hilarious! One day a gun show, the next a bunch of wannabe Southern belles! This place is more like a high school gym than convention center. Go somewhere else; preferably away from Dayton altogether!

Came here for a conference and enjoyed the facility. The building could use some minor face lifting and renovation but the staff and meeting room selection clearly makes this a really good place for large meetings. The Convention Center is connected to a hotel and parking garage which is convenient on bad weather days.

Since the opening of the Dayton Convention Center, I have worked the the professionals to host several national, regional and local conferences. We like that the Dayton Convention Center is very central, and is constantly upgrading the facilities. The Dayton Convention Center provides 100,000 square feet of elegant, functional space. Professional staff and facilities provide full support for all conference... More

Went to my daughter's cheerleading event at the convention center 2 weekends ago and parked in the attached walkway parking lot. As downtown parking is limited, this was where we were instructed to park by event organizers. Okay, no problem getting in and the convention center is typical Ohio convention center. No issues there, it's outdated and basic, but okay.... More

The Convention Center is great for events. Many do not know they have smaller rooms fit for luncheons, weddings and business meetings. The food is delicious! Staff is so helpful. Be creative and enjoy having your next event here!

I have been going to the Dayton Convention Center for many different things since I was a kid, and for a smaller city, with really not too much going on anymore - it's a good venue. Clean, nice staff, pretty good security (which is needed), hotel across the street if you need it, and decent parking with indoor walk-ways. I... More
