-a beautiful and enlightening gathering of Catholic homeschoolers. The conference was well organized, and the efficient design of the Expo and Conference center was well-fitted to the conference.

Good facility. Plenty of free parking. Near lodging and restaurants and shopping. Of course food vendors are available inside when shows and exhibits take place. Plenty of "Ladies" rest rooms available.

I can say that the set up and tear down, the bathroom cleaning etc. was on par with other expo centers. I just wish out promoter (NOT affiliated with the Expo center) had done a better job. This place had lots of potential for our show.

This facility is easy to get to and has plenty of parking for visitors. Restaurants and hotels are very close to this facility for business travelllers. However, if there is one drawback it is that there is only one overhead door on each side hall for access. There really needs to be more.

I have been to 3 events here and the last one I went back to the payment counter and got my money back. When you have more leaches trying to hock hot tubs/gutter guards and replacement windows than you have actual vendors for the event being held then it's time to leave.

On Thanksgiving morning, I went there for my packet pickup so that I can use my crib number and my t-shirt provided for the Turkey Trot race. The place there was exciting and gigantic!

Have gone to this location for everything from crafts shows to gun shows. They have a myriad of things going on. One complaint is the lines to enter cross directly in front of the interior lobby and cash is the only form of payment taken for the events I attended. Once I side the hall the area is expansive and... More

Location could not be better! Shops all around, malls galore, right off I-95 and close to Rt. 1. Pillows were like rocks (bring your own), and handicapped accommodations not the best.

I love having a local place that we can have quality crafters and be able to purchase their crafts without having to drive to Richmond or Northern VA!
