We visited the convention center for a cheerleading competition and we liked this place very much. It was easy to navigate to, parking in the NASCAR hall of fame was a breeze, and the center itself was well labeled and easy to find where you needed to be. The only negative (and not soooo bad) was the food court and... More

We spent 2 days in the convention center (all day) for the SOH Cheerleading Competition over the weekend. The space itself is nicely laid out. Everything was easy to find and easy to navigate and get to. The staff we encountered throughout the center were friendly and always had a smile on their face (even though I'm sure it was... More

Came here for a cheer competition. It was a huge venue. The only downside was the parking. We parked at the Westin which was 20 a day. We already figured it would be pricey anyway.

This convention center is nicely laid out. However they need to have more food options inside the center. The Starbucks line is extremely long.

Very organized. Nice, clean venue. Do not park in the parking garage in front unless you don't have any other choice. Parking $4 first 30 mins, $3 every 30 mins after.

Attended the Build, Remodel & Landscape Expo this weekend. While the conference itself was OK, the Convention Center itself was surprisingly not impressive given the city's aspirations. Carpeting and walkways were updated and high quality but general cleaning was poor. Heavy dust on the large Hall signage, water fountains showing leaking and hasty duct tape repairs. Bathrooms look like 90's... More

Thought it could have been a bit more welcoming and able to view some of the art. Had a nice outside cocktail set-up but I thought the inside could then have been a bit more private, especially as you were limited from exploring the center itself.

Visited for the Air Medical Transport Conference. Great service from the staff and plenty of rooms to conduct business. Clean facility, and plenty of shops and restaurants nearby

It is a great place for events. We went to a Comicon style convention. The place is really huge and we all the infraestructure you need in a place like this, like a lot of restrooms, stores, etc.
