I enjoyed how spacious the convention center made the vendor section due to the fact I was in a how that made it hard to walk in, it was very convenient. I also enjoy the Starbucks there when ever I go to a con.

The convention center has shuttle buses going to the various conventions. Restrooms are conveniently located.

Normal Convention Space. A long long long walk to parking garage. Large enough to accommodate most any show or convention. Numerous food vendors but very little space to sit to eat. Climate control was very good.

Was here for the PLMA show in November - overall an average facility - pluses for its size, lighting, and space. Loses points for an awful drop-off area, too few washrooms, and confusing floor space.
