My husband and I went to the convention center for a media business show. The place is beautiful. Fast food restaurants are inside. The rooms and restrooms are nice. Parking costs you, but there was one lot that was inexpensive as long as you got to it by 9 AM.

This facility is very modern and huge. We were in a room that held 3000-4000 people. The event was transmitted live on TV. Five new members were inducted into the Hall of Fame. The MC's did a very good job. The facility and hospitality were great!
