The events may be great but the center is tricky to navigate. First timers stay generally lost if you are attending classes/events on multiple floors. Its location downtown makes it easy to run out for lunch.

One of the best technical meetings in one of the better convention centers we have had. The rooms were big, but the visual and audio systems were very well managed

Pretty clean facility and spread out. Has bridges to nearby hotels. Has a cafe downstairs that looked permanent and there were a few food vendors set up so that was nice. not sure if it was just for my conference or not but it was there and available

We attended a symposium the last weekend of July and the food service was excellent and the wait staff did an outstanding job of taking care of the diners.

Were there for a conference and everything was nice - employees seemed very friendly and helpful. A couple of blocks and you have restaurants to choose from. Parking was close. Walkway from center to garage is in need of repair! Areas were rusting out and I was afraid we might step on a spot and fall through!

First time here for the NAACP conference and ACTSO awards ceremony. Very nice facility and rooms. Clean and attractive. Lots of space for the different vendors and the displays of students' art, sculpture and photography pieces and as well as the sciences and engineering designs/boards. I thoroughly enjoyed myself at Duke Energy Convention Center

We usually attend the Home Show and maybe another event every year. Big enough to handle these shows without feeling crowded. Well organized with easy access. Lots of parking nearby.

This is a huge venue. I found it to be very clean and the folks who work there are friendly, kind and helpful. I did not enjoy the good.

The facilities here are really nice and clean. Beware that the A/C is on full blast so bring a jacket. The food offered through catering made me sick. I wouldn't recommend it.
