Spacious and convenient, perfect for the tournament. They had special fountains to refill your water bottles, and plenty of bathrooms. The white domed ceilings were a nice touch, and probably helped lower the noise level. It was so close to our hotel, which sure helped...More

The big hall is built with sports in mind. Acoustics are not good. For sports no one would care. Has a coffee vendor and a UPS store, things business travelers would need.

attended a professional event at the convention center in feb 2018. the place was nice enough, we stayed downtown so getting there was also easy for us. Overall not bad, just not the best convention space i have attended in the past year.

Minneapolis is lucky to have this Convention Center right in the middle of their downtown. It is a beautiful facility that can easily hold multiple events. They even provide a coat check which we took advantage of so we could browse through the show.
