This is one of the best tournament venues in the US. USA Fencing’s NAC tournament has been held here on two separate occasions. The venue is spacious and well-lit. The concession food is above-average. The Convention Center’s staff is professional and friendly

The center covers a great deal of area. Make sure you have on your walking shoes. There are a number of display cases throughout showing off events that they hosted.
