In town for USA Fencing Junior Olympics, I found the Convention Center spacious and well appointed. Lots of signage helped me navigate through the center. The staff made excellent recommendations for lunch and dinner

There is a reason that many trade shows avoid union venues and this facility is the pinnacle. Lazy, could care less attitude.....I have done numerous trade shows over the years and surprisingly this place takes the cake for bad attitudes. You go out of you way to be nice and you might as well talk to yourself

Attending Fan Fest at the KCCC was awesome. The parking was convenient, hotels and restaurants were close. It seemed like a safe area, and was well secured. I will attend another convention at this venue.

The convention center was adequate and average. Nothing special here. Clean and spacious. The large upper room we were in had several large screens to view stage speakers and musicians by.

Big convention center with only the basics- nothing fancy. Few amenities and lacking in any decent food other then hotdogs and hamburgers. Cement floors. Escalators to second level which is just like the first. Annual boat, auto, and home and lawn show for public. Parking is across the street for underground or in many surface lots in a 4 block...

The convention center is in the popular Power and Light district in the middle of the city. Parking can be challenging however - most shuttle. Nice convention hall as halls go.

The space is large, but you have to pay to park and sometimes walk a ways in inclement weather to get to the venue. It really needs some updating as well.

The facility is very nice. However, signage is not very good and you can easily become lost. Signage needs to be visable outside or immediatelty as you enter the buildings. As with most convention centers it was way too cold in the buildings.

Ok, the first day of our convention, we walked a city block inside to get from the door on 13th street to the registration on 14th street. And there were no chairs. Luckily the convention asked and the next day the hallway was lined with places to sit. The bathrooms were nice, and kept clean, and the rooms were nice.... More
