Facility good except for poor audio. No room for VAVRS to use as a hospitality site. Poor information on site itself for parking, who is where and way overpriced cafe.

Our first grandchild graduated high school (OK we are getting old) and it was held at the Convention Center. Very impressive building and codo's to the local police and traffic planners that got everyone in and out so quickly.

Close to the beach, easy parking - large and well marked. The amenities are typical to a convention center and the food vendors are friendly.

I was here at the American Shetland Sheepdog Association National Specialty. This center is HUGE to say the least. Very modern, clean, spacious and beautiful with lots of parking lots.
