It is a great place for events. We went to a Comicon style convention. The place is really huge and we all the infraestructure you need in a place like this, like a lot of restrooms, stores, etc.

Attended the Charlotte Auto Show at the Charlotte Convention Center and it's very easy to get in and house for this show. Many areas for unloading or loading material from vehicles. Staff is very pleasant and helpful!

Went there 1X only for a motorcycle convention. It is a nice place - laid out well for exhibits / conventions. I think that one of the Hunger Games movies was piece filmed there in the long hallway - when the tributes were being recognized - when she first wore her fire dress and was in the chariot....

Nice enough medium size facility in downtown Charlotte. A convenient 15 min 20 dollar Uber ride to the airport. Main hall was well lit but the air conditioning was aggressive which made it quite cold. Dining choices ( and I use the word loosely) were limited to fried foods and other fast food options. Verizon and other cell phone coverage... More

There is nothing I would call exciting about the center, but it is adequate; seating (free standing chairs) tends to be packed closely together, and the air conditioning has been too cold in the afternoons the three times I have been there. There are 3 fast food booths plus a Starbucks for hundreds or thousands of people, so waits for... More

It needs a few more options for eateries. The size is fine for the location but needs a little updating.

Just OK for a large meeting/ exhibits, and certainly in need of renovation. Decent enough facility, but very limited in eateries, very few restrooms available in the exhibit hall, and an uninspiring interior and exterior décor.

I attended the Southern Women's Home Show again this year and it was very nice. The venue is very spacious and there appeared to be well over a hundred vendors. Very easy to maneuver around and find things. They also have a small food court strategically placed along the back wall for easy access. Great place for a large event.
