We had our national sorority convention here. The meeting spaces accommodated our needs very well. We had over 1200 people in attendance. A/V was handle by PSAV and they did a splendid job at every meeting. My only problem was with the caterer that was used. Every mill was not good from breakfast to the lunches that we were served....

We held our Biennial meeting at this convention center which is quite spacious and relatively close to most hotels. It was convenient to restaurants on 6th street as well.

The building is very nice, we found parking near by and it was in expensive. The tattoo convention was OK, nothing great (it was the 1st one).

Parking at the Willard Garage was easy to get to the Convention Center. The building is absolutely beautiful and unique. It is underground yet you can see the lake at the... More

I travelled to Cleveland for a conference at the convention center. Overall it went well. The facility staff was very helpful! One frustrating part was the parking as there were no lots close by to park and bring in our trade show materials. The facility was new or updated and the accommodations were great! Overall it was a good experience.

We were there for a cheerleading competition. I remember when the convention center was dirty and run down. Now it's clean and updated. The bathrooms were clean and functional. And overall it was a really nice facility. Parking was a little confusing from the street. It could be better marked.

This was my first time inside the Convention Center. It's much bigger than I thought it was. I went for the Home Improvement Show there.
