I have frequented this convention center mostly for scrapbooking conventions. There are usually large crowds which the center handles well.

The center handles foot traffic inside easily as it is a large place... More

This show itself was excellent with a large selection of campers, motor homes, and vendors. It has improved from past years. The venue itself is large and parking is free which is nice. There is nothing remarkable about the venue itself, but a convention center needs to be generic enough to accommodate any type of show. The lighting did seem... More

Attended Fly Fishing Expo. Not sure which was more depressing, the poor expo or this tired old building in which it was held. Place could use a facelift.

We were here for a video game tournament. Average facility. Ladies room was very clean. Not much else to saw as this was just a room filled with tables and video games. I do have to saw it was very convenient to our hotel though!

Went here for Anime Fan Fest. The convention center is extremely small compared to ones I have been to (like the baltimore convention center). Only a couple panel rooms, but had a large room that was great for dealers. Staff seemed generally nice. Small food court. Parking was great and free.

It's a good space for a Memorabilia show, nothing spectacular. Free Parking is a major plus. Hotels nearby
