Big Convention Center out of nowhere

I don't know why the state's association for my kids sports always puts the state championships here. They don't allow outside food and drinks to be brought in. Very strict... read more

I don't know why the state's association for my kids sports always puts the state championships here. They don't allow outside food and drinks to be brought in. Very strict and airport style checks when entering the venue(which is good for safety I guess). Access to the lower area of the center are limited on four corners. There are nice... More

We visited for a Dental Convention and the day was a success. It was informative, enjoyable but just no people around to direct you from one building to another. Parking was also a problem.

Not quite sure how many stars to put - We have been here a number of times - We really enjoy and appreciate that the rows of seats are not super close as we've experienced other places. You can sit with your legs comfortably in front of you - and even in some locations, you don't have to get up... More

The parking is really great. But the road signs could be improved. I used google maps and found my way around the one-way streets pretty well.

Once you get past the age of the building and the lack of an interesting location, it isn't bad. I attended a small convention and they handled our group well. Food was good for banquet style but the service was excellent. At first the lobby was terribly hot (where exhibitors were) but later they cooled it down. Would have been... More

This theatre has the worst acoustics of any theatre I've ever been in and I've been in many theatres. I took a bus group of 56 people there to see "The Book of Mormon" and all I got was complaints that they could not follow the dialogue and understand the words to the songs that were sung. I even got... More

First off this place is in Downtown Fresno,which is not the best part of town. While helping with the Miss California Pageant I was repeatedly hounded by homeless while walking down the side walk heading to the entrance. While inside the place looked outdated. Overall i wasn't to impressed.
