The work was way above what we expected... More

We attended the 2016 IBMA Bluegrass event. There were several activities going on within and outside of the convention centre. There was a section that had various exhibitions of bluegrass instruments along with workshops and a section where musicians could perform for visitors. All were very well organized with volunteers within easy access for questions and assistance.

Frequently several functions are going on at the same time. We were there for the Home Show and an Art show was also going on. Very clean, parking decks are close, bathrooms are spacious. Nice building, easy to find things.

My daughter was here for an charity event fashion show for kids, it was very spacious. They were in the middle of remodeling so it was some workers there but not in the way... as well the staff are very friendly.
