Great venue for continuing ed programs. Rooms are ample, facilities including restrooms are clean and well maintained. Break snacks and Continental breakfasts are fine. A/V is typically good. Had a little glitch at most recent seminar, but they appear to have plenty of staff available as it was resolved quickly.

This is an enjoyable arboretum. It is massive, well maintained, quiet, offers a variety of ecosystems and trails, and lovely lovely gardens and spaces around a nice small lake. Definitely worth a visit. There is an entry fee, except, I believe one day week, which if memory serves, is Sunday.

Plenty of private and secure dressing rooms with easy access to the stages. Very clean and safe. It was big, but makes good use of all the space. I suggest parking in the covered lot under the center. It's pretty hot in June.

We went there of the NPC Figure and Fitness show June of 2016. They had a decent concession stand and bar set up inside the event. Their ATM was down for approx 1 hour, they had someone in there quick to fix. Great job

Absolutely beautiful. Very clean surroundings. Wonderful place to bring the family, either for a casual visit, to be used as a business meeting or classes.

For several years my company has been hosting career fairs in the larger expo rooms. My daughter has attended employee appreciation dinners with the hospital where she is a nurse. I live close by and always notice when some big event, convention or trade show is going on there. There are numerous large meeting rooms available, plenty of open air... More

Took 2 classes in this facility for Johnson County Codes. Good seating, lighting and sound were excellent. The restrooms were large and well taken care of. Plenty of free parking.

We had our company holiday party here for the first time and it was awesome. The staff was very helpful in getting everything setup. They even provided us with the centerpieces, coordinated the table cloths to match our corporate colors. Everything was top notch. The food was unbelievably good, like eating at a 5 star restaurant! It was also very... More
