I have been to this convention center for 7 years for my son's gymnastics meet. This facility is modern and bright! KCC sits right next to an observation ball with 360 degree views of the the city. The food service had something to offer for everyone with many healthy options. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked - no severe... More

We have been to several different events held here, health & wellness, business dinners, Christmas and charity events. We have not been disappointed, good parking, very clean and easy to get around. Good safety for downtown events, well lit. Unfortunately, we have moved out of state. To answer suitable for all ages depends on the event.

Living in K'ville I have been here for quite a few different events. Their staff is always friendly and helpful. It's a great venue for anything. With the ability to cut the room to a smaller size or open it up for a huge affair.

i have attended conventions and weddings here. It is a great place for conventions (parking is sometimes hard to find) but not a great place for weddings.

This building has a strange lay-out and it seems like there's always that "where do I go?" moment. Not much parking nearby. The best option is to park at the Holiday Inn across the street but it fills up FAST. My advice is to arrive early!

The convention center has the typical, flexible space of a downtown convention center. It has carpeted ballrooms & meeting rooms as well as large concrete floor display spaces for lots of different venues. Great staff, works very well with clients. There are many downtown hotels, but only a few within walking distance, and the ones in walking distance are 3... More
