Visited for the ASAE tradeshow and the staff could not have been any friendlier. Super easy to get around the convention center and the location in the middle of the city was incredible. A lot of dining/entertainment options for our tradeshow attendees.

We were there for a 31 conference. Everyone we approached from security to cleaning to guest services was beyond helpful and friendly. The washrooms were clean. Nice food court. Nicely air conditioned as we were there the hottest days of the year

Best convention center I have ever visited and this is because of the art. I love the sculpture pieces by Juliellen Byrne! Feels like you're in a fairy tale. Children will love, but so will anyone with storybook dreams (that can come true).

They are always renovating and revitalizing the spaces. I've been here for TOO MANY to count events and conventions, there's always something new. Easily handicap accessible. Connected to multiple hotels, food available throughout.
