If you are in a position to choose a venue for any group of 2000 or less go anywhere but the Charlotte Convention Center. Almost no directional signs and be prepared to be going up and down escalators, down long hall ways and almost no one to ask where you are and where you need to go. Very few locations... More

Every year I eagerly look forward to that weekend in June when I get to converge on the massive Charlotte Convention Center for the annual HeroesCon. One of the largest non-media, pure comic book shoes in the US, the Convention Center is more than adequate to handle the large mass of artists, dealers, comic fans and cosplayers. The center is...

I was here for a conference and experienced the large halls and the breakout rooms. In all case the chairs were comfortable, the screen was big, and most importantly, I could see the screen and hear the presenter clearly. The public space is nicely appointed and well lit. The location is perfect to the hotels and the nightlife of the... More

I liked the location of this convention center, as compared to many in the country that I've been to over the years. There is a lot to do around the convention center, within walking distance, in the evening. The only oddity was that the upper floor is divided by the train track. If you're in a smaller room on one... More

This convention center has an incredible amount of space for a conference. There were over 4000 attendees and it did not feel crowded. Very nice facility.

Large well maintained venue. No security issues. Clean large restrooms. You should feel confident in holding your events here.

This is a very large, easy to navigate location that hosted a conference I recently attended. I felt it was very nice, clean, and the staff were very accommodating. The only real area for improvement I could see is in the mens' bathrooms. As this was a largely military conference, there was a large number of men attending, and the... More

Nice place physically. Clean and very large. Signage was sparse and maps of facility somewhat confusing. Refreshments missed some of the little things: no lids for coffee cups, no juices or cold water. No tables in lecture rooms. Not sure if facility can handle multiple large conferences.

I've attended many types of events at this location - from concerts, to church services, to banquets. This place is huge and you will definitely need your walking shoes on!! I love it!!
