Great convention center for such a small city. Free parking. Part of a Marriott hotel. Located downtown

“Very poor conference support”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

I attended a small professional conference here and the experience was repeatedly hampered by the poor quality of the convention center, especially the A/V in the rooms. I didn't go to a single presentation in the three day conference where the poor speaker didn't have the mic cutting in and out. What a nightmare! There was a lot of moving a way from the mic and shouting. It was mildly amusing at first but it got old really fast. What staff we could find was surly and unresponsive. There were also lots of groups of them in the out of the way places gossiping and leaning on their stick vacuums. I don't think this convention center is a well-managed venue. Find some alternative, although Visalia is cute as a button.

“Surprisingly nice facility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Didn't expect to find this nice a conference facility in the Central Valley. The seminar rooms were roomy and well equipped. Great food during the session breaks. Only downside was the exhibit hall, which was the location of the conference speakers. It's a large multi-purpose facility that doesn't do intimate well.

Nice convention center, frequently in use. Friendly staff, good sine age inside, clean with comfortable temperature, 1block from downtown with many restaurants, hotels adjacent to it and another across the street. Good parking availability
