I've been to the convention center a number of times. The place is massive, well constructed, simple no nonsense decor, and the best feature by far is the huge window overlooking the river. Numerous rooms are available for whatever you might need, from receptions to work parties to whatever. We went because DD had ISTEP testing for her online school. Lots of steps, lots of interesting hallways. It's connected to the South Bend Museum of Art which is another review in itself. Friendly staff, very clean facility. Thumbs up.

Discovery Ballroom at the Century Center featured an outstanding facility for a 200+ guest event. Gorgeous appointments (lighting, standing bars, etc), excellent dance floor, and state-of-the-art sound and video systems helped make the event picture and sound perfect. Century Center support staff, and cooking star Chef Rory Bancroft made planning and executing the event a delight.

The building is deteriorating. The food served doesn't quite come up to average. I wouldn't waste my time as a tourist.

The only convention center in the area that is not a hotel. You can rent a room for a special occasion. The downstairs has a great view of the river. In the summer, the outside area and the amphitheater are open for the visitors to stroll around and enjoy the "fresh"air and the mist from the river

It seems like there are more events at Century Center than there had been in the past. You can tell an attempt has been made to make the building welcoming despite the architecture and scale being of a more grand and slightly cold nature. Some of the details of the building are pretty amazing though, such as the view through the large windows in the grand hall, the bathrooms, the museum, etc.
