There for a church convention, but visited the place early on the weekend. Crowed with body builders. The exhibition hall noise could be heard in our conference room. The place was very cold during the week.

Conference rooms are okay. Would suggest providing pens and note pads/paper at large conference events.... I didn't have anything to write with had to borrow a pen from an attendee.

This might be the largest event facility on the Island. Ideal for conventions located next to the Hilton Hotel on the Seawall.

I came here for a conference. The Convention Center is as nice as other centers in larger cities. The service is great, and the facility is beautiful.
