“Great place for your event!”
Review of Lansing Center

Lansing Center
Reviewed March 5, 2014

We have a conference we run for 500 people every other year. 2015 will be our 4th time there. We have decided to keep our conference there permanently. They have strong attention to detail, ample parking, training rooms with great set ups and equipment. They are located next to the Raddison hotel and connected by a walkway making access perfect. Our vendors and attendees love the layout and amenities. Food is good a bit pricey but not out of line with other facilities. Gus Pine and his staff work very hard. GLEUS is our organization, we are an electric utility trade show.

Lansing used to have a beautiful old civic center that was torn down. I agree with another reviewer, the old civic center had many fine concerts with well known national performers. This new civic center, which incidentally looks and feels like a gigantic cracker box sitting along side the Grand River is nothing special. There is not enough parking, the events that are held there are all overpriced. A case in point is the annual Golf show. When I started attending many years ago, it was thriving. It has since dwindled down to a mediocre event that only takes up a quarter of the space it used to utilize consisting of a bunch of third tier golf item resellers. I finally quit going. Apparently Lansing leadership has no concept of the history of Lansing and absolutely no love for older architecture. They trashed the old historic civic center for this monstrosity, then demolished the historic city market next to it, replacing it with a gigantic pole barn that is equally ugly. They are currently trying to spruce things up by attempting to get a casino built on the end of the civic center. If it weren't for the baseball stadium across the street, there would be no reason to ever go downtown.

Lansing center is a new, modern, well located center of events. Lots of bar and restaurants around, the fresh market is a short walking distance and has excellent infrastructure. I attend the Sola13 Conference there and we were 3000 people and everything occurred fine! Awesome 2 days spent there!

nice place to hold events. but its extremely expensive. Even to get into anything. Bridal shows, swap meets, golf expo, any expo. and the money used to go towards your purchase but not any more. and kids have to pay to. so silly. Then don't even hold events that pertain to children.

Very clean, well staffed, elevators/escalators all in working order. Only complaint, parking was a bear.
