Good Convention Center

While not modern, this was a spacious and comfortable Convention Center. It is located in downtown with lots of nice places to eat close by.

Spent two days here this year and the last two, for quartet and chorus contests. It's a very convention hall on one side of a hallway. It's like a bare warehouse with dividers. It is strung out, making it a long walk for contestants and visitors. Elevators were not adequate for the size of crowd before and after the event,... More

Lots of various spaces of various sizes. Staff are very accommodating. Dining on site and within walking distance. About to add more space. Connected to RUPP arena and the Hyatt hotel.

My sister and I gained a lot of knowledge in this nice facility. It was convenient to be able to get some great tasting Starbucks coffee while there.

During the day, the convention center is exactly what you would expect. At night, a number of people can be found sitting around trying to stay warm - which is not really a problem. The only concern is that security seemed to be non-existent.

I hate being trapped in convention centers that refuse to step up and provide WiFi......make it part of the package you offer to convention organizers.....not many of us can be away from the office for extended periods without having to work remotely....why make it hard on us?!

This is a cool little mini mall that connects right next to Rupp Arena. There's always something going on, so if you're in the area go check it out

I have been to a number of events at the Convention Center, the most recent being Jurassic Quest. The venue is very nice and there are shops/restaurants attached to the Convention Center. There is plenty of parking.

Excellent meeting place for conventions. Excellent displays on periodic basis such as "History of the English Speaking Bible". Just a classy place to visit.

No wifi coverage in the arena, terrible cell phone service, concession options are limited, concourse is way too small, seats are very uncomfortable
