My son and I went to a WWE NXT wrestling event here at the Old National Events Plaza (New name I think). It was a very clean modern facility with several theaters/venues inside. Best of all, it was attached to the hotel where we stayed, so it was also very convenient. The event staff was very nice and professional. Would... More

This is a very nice mid-size event center. It is very modern and nicely furnished. However "Indiana" was spelled incorrectly wherever posted. The food was less than expected and the food service was a disaster. We were served two meals there and a continental breakfast. The breakfast was our group's choice, but plastic flatware is unexcuseable when paying the price... More

I truly like this event center much more than I do the new Ford Center. Prices are still "fairly" reasonable while the prices for events at the Ford Center continue to climb. They also have very, very limited parking now making some of the parking for the Evansville Auditorium more difficult. We did not need anything this big downtown unless... More

If you're wanting to host a gathering and need space for a good number of people, then you have found your place. It's clean, modern and has security. Plus it's near by the Ford Center, Evansville Library and Downtown eateries.

If you're wanting to ho;d a gathering and need space for a good number of people, then you have found your place. It's clean, modern and has security. Plus it's right by the Ford Center, so you can maybe catch a concert or a ball game.

Drinks, popcorn, hotdogs....all food is VERY PRICEY! Don't know what the ticket prices will be for new hockey team. We've only been told that's going to be lower than when Icemen there.

The place was rather large; good for a con that was currently going on. The food costs were too high for a small hotdog. I understand that a place has to make money but I would imagine that booth rental, the actual space within the building would suffice. The security wasn't worth it; buy a drink inside if you step...

Whether it is the Larry Aiken Auditorium for a large speaking engagement or production,or much needed space for a large convention or a single large room for a charity event or a smaller room for a wedding reception, this venue has what you need. The space is top notch and multifunctional. It also offers plenty of parking near the building.

Seems to be professionally run yet largely unused. Always clean with a bright appearance. The new hotel will help with the usage.
