My husband and I went to the convention center for a media business show. The place is beautiful. Fast food restaurants are inside. The rooms and restrooms are nice. Parking costs you, but there was one lot that was inexpensive as long as you got to it by 9 AM.

This facility is very modern and huge. We were in a room that held 3000-4000 people. The event was transmitted live on TV. Five new members were inducted into the Hall of Fame. The MC's did a very good job. The facility and hospitality were great!

The only negative (and not soooo bad) was the food court and... More

The convention center is attached to the NASCAR Hall of fame, and offers lots of great places to eat nearby, and has a Starbucks, einsteins bagels and a bojangles inside. Lots of great convention space, and ballrooms.

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
