The facility is just fine for a concert. They however were not appropriately staffed to handle their new "airport security screening" process. Long lines and most people were late to the concert. We went about 50 minutes early and stood in line missing the first few minutes of the concert.

First time that I had attended this conference for our company and I am confident that we should be a vendor for this event next year. Great indoor display space and one of the few conferences in Illinois that you can see the truck's displayed indoors.

I have been to 2 separate events at the Civic Center for banquents, one in the newer side, up the escalator, and the other in the older part of the building. Tables and chairs are always set up very neatly, numbers on table, food service very prompt, salad, food, and desert that has picked by the event person is usually... More

We met for 4 days at the Civic Center in Peoria. It was clean and well-maintained. It was not laid out in a manner that was easy to move from one location to another in my opinion. It is handicapped accessible. The staff was helpful in negotiating the facility.

I'm sure that on the day it opened this place celebrated, But over the years it's become tired and worn. I was there for a four-day convention and couldn't wait to get out. On the two days it rained there were literally a hundred buckets catching water that was dripping in from everywhere. The skylight lobby was unbearably hot. Coming... More

We are most familiar with theater at the civic center which provides very good acoustic properties in a pleasing setting. Easy to get in and out of, we park free at the Marriott Deck and take the skywalk to the center. We've been to many banquets as well in the nicely appointed banquet room which can be made to accommodate... More
