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.

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.

We are lucky enough to live literally right next door to the convention center. Always great events going on and most are very inexpensive. Easy to get to and parking is immense.
