This place is convienient and HUGE. It is split into two sides of the street so you may be running all over the place trying to find your sessions. But all in all, a nice venue

Great event with a good selection of local tech companies. The convention center is Avery versatile place to hold large or medium size events.

The convention center is amazing, with the availability to just park downstairs and climb a flight of stairs to attend the conference and or class is a great plus.

This is a huge facility that is well suited for large events. It is well maintained and comfortable. There is a good court in the building but plenty of good places to eat close by.

Sometimes convention centers are poorly designed, too big, or have hard to understand directions inside. I must say, after just a few hours, I found this one easy to navigate. They were accommodating in every way, offered lots of food, and at a reasonable price....More

It shouldn't be a problem to enter the convention center, but if there is a conference going on, then certain areas/ballrooms may have access limited to conference attendees.
