Big crowds pose a problem getting out of the Convention Center. We tried to go east to Roe with no better results

I Travel all over North America doing presentations on the latest in Automotive technology. I have NEVER attended Visionkc on the first weekend of march every year and haven't seen the most organized, helpful staff in North America. I never even heard " let me go find out". Every staff member knows what to do and How to do it.... More

If I hadn't been... More

Parking was mostly full but we were able to find a spot with our handicap sticker. The facility has escalators and elevators and plenty of restrooms. Interesting show and a nice place to be on a Saturday afternoon.

This is a beautiful Convention Center. It is very clean. The air conditioning and the heat work well and the building is kept at a comfortable temperature. The support workers are incredible. No bad attitudes here. They really cater to their conventions here.

This was my first gun show done in this facility, since the old one that used to be used for gun shows got turned into some form of "open air office" thing. Overall, the facility interior was nice. First up, the bathrooms very very classy and well maintained. A/C was on and working well during the customer hours (not so... More
