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

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.

Duke Energy Center is a big piece of the Cincinnati. From the outside it has a cold feeling. However, inside, it's a completely different story. I've been impressed at just how orderly and friendly everything is. The staff seemed friendly and eager to help. I appreciate that. I think if there is a big show happening inside in Cincinnati, it's... More

I attended a 2 day, all day conference here. Unfortunately, I had to keep walking back and forth between the ballrooms and classrooms 202 and those around there. LOTS of walking. But the meals and snacks were excellent. A little cold in the rooms at time, and limited wi fi, but overall good.

Recently attended a large convention at the Duke Energy Center. Parking was easily found and very reasonable (I think it was 8 bucks for the day) Everything was well laid out, great facility.

This set-up is so nice! I love coming to conventions here! The staff is remarkably friendly and helpful. They truly want your experience to be remembered. I was particularly impressed with their security. There were a few homeless people by the door areas, which at at homeschool convention makes you a little uncomfortable with kids. This staff was on it... More

Went here for a cheerleading competition. This is one of the nicest convention centers we go to. Very spacious and very easy to find your way around. Looking forward to going back here next year!
