The event planner was very helpful at first, but we had so much trouble getting quotes for food for our event. It seemed like there was one excuse after another. Almost cancelled the event because of lack of communication.

As convention centers go, for a city the size of Dayton, this one is pretty nice. It is in need of some updates, but the facilities were clean and service was good.

The convention center is always great but I complained to them about the Dayton Home and Garden Show falsely advertising on their website exhibitions that were not at the show. I received no satisfaction from either entity.

Friendly staff, but the conditions of the convention center are terrible. The bathrooms are disgusting and offered no soap or paper towels. No comparison with northern ky convention center. The hotels associated with the convention center are a disaster. I would about downtown Dayton entirely.

very dated but clean. Hall where we were was cold and drafty. Restrooms were clean and food court was good. Again, everyone on staff was exceptionally nice and helpful.

booked an event here and the AC went out, there was a problem with the drainage and water poured from the ceiling on top of paying attendees, the escalators failed inspection the week prior to the event because they didn't make repairs that the KNEW needed to be done, and the LIST GOES ON!!!

Came here for a conference and enjoyed the facility. The building could use some minor face lifting and renovation but the staff and meeting room selection clearly makes this a really good place for large meetings. The Convention Center is connected to a hotel and parking garage which is convenient on bad weather days.

Thank mkmcnair
