My husband and I went to the convention center for a media business show. The place is beautiful. Fast food restaurants are inside. The rooms and restrooms are nice. Parking costs you, but there was one lot that was inexpensive as long as you got to it by 9 AM.

This facility is very modern and huge. We were in a room that held 3000-4000 people. The event was transmitted live on TV. Five new members were inducted into the Hall of Fame. The MC's did a very good job. The facility and hospitality were great!

Nothing too exciting to see, you can tour it in only 10 minutes, honestly I wouldn't go if there's not an event going on.

We visited the convention center for a cheerleading competition and we liked this place very much. It was easy to navigate to, parking in the NASCAR hall of fame was a breeze, and the center itself was well labeled and easy to find where you needed to be. The only negative (and not soooo bad) was the food court and... More

The convention center is attached to the NASCAR Hall of fame, and offers lots of great places to eat nearby, and has a Starbucks, einsteins bagels and a bojangles inside. Lots of great convention space, and ballrooms.

We spent 2 days in the convention center (all day) for the SOH Cheerleading Competition over the weekend. The space itself is nicely laid out. Everything was easy to find and easy to navigate and get to. The staff we encountered throughout the center were friendly and always had a smile on their face (even though I'm sure it was... More

Came here for a cheer competition. It was a huge venue. The only downside was the parking. We parked at the Westin which was 20 a day. We already figured it would be pricey anyway.

This convention center is nicely laid out. However they need to have more food options inside the center. The Starbucks line is extremely long.

Very organized. Nice, clean venue. Do not park in the parking garage in front unless you don't have any other choice. Parking $4 first 30 mins, $3 every 30 mins after.

Attended the Build, Remodel & Landscape Expo this weekend. While the conference itself was OK, the Convention Center itself was surprisingly not impressive given the city's aspirations. Carpeting and walkways were updated and high quality but general cleaning was poor. Heavy dust on the large Hall signage, water fountains showing leaking and hasty duct tape repairs. Bathrooms look like 90's... More
