We visited the convention center to attend a professional performance by the Ballet Theatre of Maryland. The theatre was very nice, comfortable and modern. We sat in the balcony, which is the best view for ballet. Before the performance we wandered around the center, which seemed very nice. There is a terrace on the back side of the building, which...

We went to the Jeep Invasion at the Convention Center. It was well managed, very clean and very cool inside. There were ample clean bathrooms and a nice seating area.

This is a large and modern facility. The front right area has a place for tourists to pick up all kinds of pamphlets and information on Ocean City and the surrounding area. Check out their websight to see what will be going on when you will be in OC. Everyone can use a break for an hour or so from... More

Not only for information about the resort but also entertainment dates and convention avenues. Large, easy accessible and food area is also available.

We were here for a week attending a dance competition. They say no outside food or drink, but yet don't really offer any healthy food for our dancers. And the food prices were way too expensive. Convention center itself is very nice, modern, and absolutely huge! Plenty of free parking.

This place is great for large events such as the dance competitions we've been to. Very modern and spacious. Parking is no problem. They have a mean concession manager though, yelling at the kids for bringing in outside food as they don't like the choices offered there and there are not enough time to go out to eat. We feel...

Displays were impressive, inside and outside .. The people tending the booths were very.informative. The convention centre was clean, washrooms were clean. The building was spacious and well laid out.
