We had a convention with about 1200 attendees and staff. Excellent venue for plenaries and keynote speakers. Food was excellent and the servers were pleasant and efficient. Easy access from several nearby hotels via tunnels.

Attended a 5 day convention here, the facilities were standard for this type of venue, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food provided for lunch and an evening dinner were of good quality.

Conference area was spacious and IT was good but the a/c was way too cold. Most people brought coats for day 2. Lunch was average but the conference dinner was excellent.

Attended a two day conference here. Large facility, with no windows in most rooms. Rooms were too cold, then too hot due to difficulty regulating the temperature of a large room with 400+ people. Food was excellent.

I attended a large international event at the convention centre and found the facilities convenient and amenable to the work. It is not really any different than any other conference centre or large hotel. Big conference rooms with sliding curtains to create smaller ones. The...More
