This is a modern, professional convention facility. The catering was very good from basic lunches to an elegant banquet. The staff is cordial. The surrounding area has numerous restaurants and bars.

We had a convention with about 1200 attendees and staff. Excellent venue for plenaries and keynote speakers. Food was excellent and the servers were pleasant and efficient. Easy access from several nearby hotels via tunnels.

Attended a 5 day convention here, the facilities were standard for this type of venue, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food provided for lunch and an evening dinner were of good quality.
