I've only attended functions; I've never rented space from them. This is one of the nicest convention centers between Portland to Seattle. The building is modern, big and well laid out. It's in a beautiful part of Tacoma with a great view of Mt. Rainer on a sunny day. I was injured once and the escalators help me get around.... More

Very modern building and a great space (we attended a pinball convention). The restaurant had decent fast food for a good price.

The space is great for meetings/conventions. Be aware of needles spotted along the grounds/benches outdoors. Been here several times over the years and I feel bad for the employees having to tell attendees "no outside food allowed when the restaurant is open" as the rule isn't enforced at all and the joke is on them. Unless bags are checked upon... More

Recently attended the Creating Keepsakes convention there. Great venue, security staff very friendly and helpful. Food vendors were reasonable, closed too early though and opening too late.

Attended the 2015 Univera Convention. Its a nice venue with lots of parking options. You will have to pay. Look for a garage with a daily rate rather than parking at the hotel or short term spaces. It will save you money.

I think the convention is a very nice building and that Tacoma has it. Only, the three events I went there for were blasé and not very interesting or exciting. The center is beautifully designed and has a great view of the bay. Too bad they decided against a space needle type viewing deck.
