I am a local and often walk near the bay, near the Vista Queen docks. Why has the sidewalk area not been updated in the over 40 years the DECC has been built? The sidewalks are crazy, not very walkable. There are square tracts of land near scrubby trees that are just dirt, with nothing planted on them. The benches... More

I was here for a conference so we were in a ballroom and meeting rooms. This place is huge and connected to the ice arena, with tons of meeting and convention space, next to the aquarium and theater. There is good pedestrian passage from downtown and along the waterfront via skywalks, sidewalks, and pedestrian walkways. The light breakfast, lunch, and... More

Attended ARRM conference here in mid-May . The venue was wonderful . The conference rooms were comfortable and had tables which made note taking easy. Beautiful scenery . Loved looking out at Lake Superior and the Ariel Bridge. Great sky way system which puts you in close proximity to shopping, restaurants and hotel . All DECC staff I came in... More

The DECC has been working with Celebration Talent for a while now. My sister has danced here for competition for over 6 years and we love it. It is close to food vendors/restaurants (walk over the bridge, 10 minute walk with awesome views). Concessions are a bit pricey like every concession stand you go to and seats are a little... More

We were here for the Minnesota Association of Christian Home Educators conference and we were treated like royalty! The DECC staff are amazing. The venue has breathtaking views and great hospitality. We took up most of the building. Not the first conference I've been to here and it's always a fantastic experience. The DECC is intentional about recycling too!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn and enjoyed our walk through the new updated indoor Skywalk to the DECC (that's what they call it at the front desk). Saw the Globetrotters there! Very nice place. Lots of fun!

A bit sprawling and spread out, but the staff here are very well trained, informative and helpful. Nice views from the Harborside halls.

Attended convention at The DECC, maybe 500 people. Plus vendors and presenters. Been there before they do a good job. Meeting rooms are comfortable wifi usable and what food I had was better than some other venues. Skyway access to downtown and good views of St Louis Bay.

Went to a Diabetes Conference for work at the DECC. The conference center was large, comfortable and accommodating. The event was catered and the view from the lunch area was breathtaking. The center was very modern. The temperature in the venue was warm and I didn't need to wear the sweater I brought with just in case. I had to... More
