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 No issues there, it's outdated and basic, but okay....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!

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

The DCC is always clean and in spite of many exhibits, spacious. The restrooms are always safe due to the high level of security at the Center. Parking is easy since their is a garage associated with the Center. Enjoy!

Located in the very center of downtown Dayton. Connected by an overhead, enclosed walkway to a hotel and easy walking distance from any hotel downtown. Indoor parking garage across the street and can be accessed without going outside. Large facility.

We had the opportunity to visit the convention center today during the annual World Affair. This was the first time we have visited in a decade. The entrance and lobby areas were very clean and welcoming. I like it that the exhibition area is not very far from the main lobby. The formal presentation areas were updated and easy to... More

The Convention Center is convenient to get to, parking garage and the Crowne Plaza Hotel just across the street and all connected by elevated enclosed crosswalks. The Convention Center has everything needed for a successful meeting place. Meeting rooms, rest rooms, drinking fountains, escalators connecting... More
