Have been here several times for multiple events. Very easy to get in and out of and two great hotels next to it if you need to spend the night.

There are no bad seats at the center for a ball game. And they have added restrooms on the main floor which has been needed since it was built. Not sure why someone didn't think of that when the built it.

There is a lot of exposition space and you will never feel closed in. It is conveniently located near several hotels in downtown Springfield.

Over the years I have visited this facility twice to give professional talks, and have found it acceptable as a convention center. However, there is no other reason to visit it even if it appears on the Springfield list of things to see. You can...More
