I have been to the Prime Osborn many times for one event or another. It is well defined for the events that are held there, however I am always disappointed that they hold these events and charge the vendors to set up to sell their items, you they charge you as well to come in and buy these same items....

OK, this is a complaint against nearly ALL community owned venues. The cost for admission for most events these days makes consideration of spending too much money to see a ninety minute show with tickets hijacked by seat scalpers a second consideration. If we were able to see events at the printed cost of the ticket, great, I might not... More

We typically go here annually for the Christmas Made in the South and other events. There was a home and patio show that we went to as well. The venue is by no means modern, but serves its purpose. The city could probably do it some justice and do some updating or build a completely new convention center. The people... More

I have been here many times for a number of events. I think it is a great place to go and conduct business. I would also recommend you go. It is a clean and safe place. Parking is never a problem.

This convention center is a mid-size place perfect for hosting, as an example, the Home & Patio event, which is popular here in Jacksonville. There is plenty of parking and the staff are welcoming. The only downside is unlike other venues, there is no hotel attached to the convention center and so out of town visitors will need to cab... More

Went here for an indoor cheer competition. The facility looked a little sketchy from the outside but wasn't too bad on the inside. The venue was pretty good. Limited snack bar available for lunch and the prices are average for an event like that. Parking was in an empty dirt lot across the street for $5 per vehicle.
