There is a lot of exposition space and you will never feel closed in. It is conveniently located near several hotels in downtown Springfield.

I understand the place was remodeled recently and it sure shows. I've been in high end restaurants with bathrooms less attractive than the ones in this convention center. very friendly staff and ample affordable parking. a very nice space for a show.

We enjoyed the the convention center for this event. The complex is huge and you don't feel boxed in.

It had been a very long time since I had attended a venue at PCCC. The set up for the concert was great. The staff was helpful to help us find our seats. Great facility and great concert!!

First time to attend a concert at the Praire Capital Convention Center. It is a small venue. Our original seats where behind a curtain. The staff seated us very close to the stage, which really made our night. Thought the downtown area of Springfield was very nice, all decorated for the season. The wife and I enjoyed the evening.

Over the years I have visited this facility twice to give professional talks, and have found it acceptable as a convention center. However, there is no other reason to visit it even if it appears on the Springfield list of things to see. You can buy food here, but you are better off visiting the fast food places in the... More
