This is a great place to see a concert or performance. Small enough so that every seat is good, clean, smells nice. We have seen lot's of wonderful acts here over the years.

“Beautiful Building”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I have been here for a few events, the last one being the Womens Expo. The building itself is a nice decor inside and if you head toward the river side a great view. Convenient parking across the street (although a bit steep on price, better trying to find street parking and walk).

“Women's Expo”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great event. This event presented a wide range of quality products and services, most of which you could sample right there. What a nice "girls day out." Combine it with an evening at a local hotel and you have a very relaxing mini vacation.

“A good expo hall”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Attended the annual Golf Show at DeVos Place. Good parking accross the street. Police directed traffic so crossing was quick and asy. The hall is large and very well lighted. A wonderful place for trade shows. DeVos is easy to get to off I-196. A safe and comfortable facility.

For a smaller city, this show was a good one! I enjoyed that we could go inside the cars and explore all the features.
