Been to many shows at this place. It is very nicely maintained and a great place to rent if you need a large venue. Most businesses use it for conventions or shows. Schools are using it for dances and proms.

The Convention Center is in a wonderful location. We were there for a conference, and there was plenty of room for displays, meetings, registration, and sessions. The space is nicely decorated and restrooms were clean and conveniently located. It was a wonderful facility.

The parking garage was big enough for our bigger truck. The convention center had adequate space and comfortable furniture. It is a beautiful place.

This convention center is a good place for a professional society meeting. Big without being too huge, it can handle a good-sized convention. The Tourist Information Center inside was short of information, being more interested in selling sandwiches than in providing maps, etc. Bummer.

What an ugly building. It looks like a 1950s airline terminal. Inside is attractive with art, but not user friendly.

Great meeting rooms large and small. Good location downtown. Great parking. The Hilton is in walking distance for out of town speakers, participants etc.
