Have been in here for guns shows, political rally's and Home and garden shows. Nice layout and clean facilities. Small food court with a variety of foods. Easily accessible to the ongoing events and has tables to sit for a quick meal. Large parking lot with several flow over areas.

Nothing special - has a multitude of events. Something for everyone, we've been there for the runner's expo and safety day events. Parking is free and plentiful, with easy access to hotels nearby.

I was there for a convention and it is just another big convention center. Big and clean. One thing I liked was there's Wegmans right next to it.

Nothing special about this center which host an annual home show, gun shows, etc. Ample parking is available but access to the lot has choke points to/from Carl Silver Parkway.

There is nothing to see here unless you are in town for a convention or expo. I found the facilities spacious and well run. The main exhibit hall can get very load, and a bit stuffy if it is a really hot and humid day outside. The Visitors and Convention folks were available to assist you getting to and from... More

It seemed to be well organized but check-in could be located in the same place that 2014 check-in location had been before.

Just your average expo center. They offer a wide variety of events throughout the year. There is easy access to the building and the outside is nice. It is in a convenient location with quick access off of I-95. There are numerous restaurants - both sit down and fast food options, lodging, and shopping close by - Spotsylvania Town Center,...

This convention center has ample parking and is free. Entrance to events in the convention center are reasonable and usually have a coupon of sorts in the paper. There is food inside but it is typical fare and price. The events are varied so you don't get bored with what comes and goes. If you need to plan an event... More

We came here for the Historic Half health expo on May 16th,2015. The building was huge, plenty of parking, and your next to wegmans. It's a great building to consider using for any show if you need all the space. The bathrooms were huge and well kept which was nice considering how old the building is. Glad to see race... More
