Take an old river side lot and build a huge modern auditorium and you get this. I guess the burg needed a place for convestions. How about spending $$$ getting the bums and threatening folks away from people

It was easy parking at the Center and very accessible to getting to the conference area for the sports vendors. Lots of room and felt very new!

What a great place they have built. Within walking distance to other tourist spots and close enough to a good amount of parking. Easy to find and get to everything from here.

Bright, open "mingling areas." Access to the roof patio (fresh air). Easy to move between session rooms. Close to major downtown hotel chains.

The best view is from the outside. It is modern architecture style right on the river. It a little disappointing inside because it lacks creativity. There is a view of the river and North Side, but it is just a big box inside. It would have been nicer if there was visibility from the whole area or if some imagination... More

Plenty of space to move around. Bathrooms were all over and were kept clean at all times. The rooms used for various sessions had a very fluctuating temperature...too hot in one room, gusting cold in the next. The large exhibit hall was huge so it never felt too crowded. I presented and the technology supplied was well done and seamless... More

We've been to the convention center for many different events, and the facility is always well maintained and clean. The concessions are a tad boring but there's usually different food options to take part in for the events. We recently attended Beerfest for the 2nd time there and it's always so well handled. There's so much space for all the... More
