The convention center was easy to get to and was surrounded by shops, hotels and restaurants. although a bit dated, the facility is well maintained and has all of the best and modern support equipment and management demonstrate consistent customer service.

The employees of the conventions center were great, helpful and kept the place very clean during our event However, the delayed construction made it difficult to navigate when loading in and loading out. This accounts for the "average" rating.

I do not think wheelchairs are available there. I often make arrangements with Scootaround to make arrangements at large convention centers like the Benton Center.
