We came her for the flying pig running expo on a extremely busy day. You will find a parking lot located right next to the convention center AND it's located in the city center area. A big plus when your staying in the hotels near by or don't want to take your car. It's a very big building so take... More

Let me start by saying the venue is very nice - HUGE - but a nice place for a competition. The staff were friendly and the facilities were clean and well kept. That said, their "no outside food" policy is a serious problem for people with food allergies. The concessions only serve food laden with gluten. Even the nachos use... More

Have been here several times this year for different events, including the Cavalcade of Customs and the Home School Convention. Great location, close to expressways, in the heart of downtown, easy access to many hotels in the downtown area, and there is ample parking facilities nearby also. Clean on the inside. Recent renovation well done. Restrooms are clean, plentiful and... More

We were here over the weekend for a convention. The lay out the facility is really nice. Wide walk areas, good signage, ample bathrooms. Everything was nice and clean and in good repair as well.

The show was exciting at first but as we walked, it was a let down for a 12 year old boy. He was to big for the rides since he's 5'7" and weighs more that 100 lbs. The price is a little high for what's offered. I'm sorry that I'm being negative but I let unhappy and sorry. More dinosaurs... More

We were there for volleyball tournament. It was super easy access from our downtown hotel as well as many parking garages. The layout, spacing and facilities were all above average. Enjoyed our visit!

Went to the Auto Show this Saturday and got there when it opened at 10am. The crowd was very light. We got our tickets at Kroger for $ 8.00 . Parking was pretty cheap too , only $6.00 at The Millennium Hotel. The show was on the first floor and was laid out by automaker. The aisles were very wide... More

I don't know where else to review this. We came into Cincinnati to see a football game and saw that Proof was on at the Energy Centre. What a fantastic time! So So So much fun! GO if you can!
