Was here for Homebrew Con 2017. A large variety of clean and comfortable event areas. Small coffee shop at entrance, would recommend bring snacks as restaurants are a 10 minute walk. Unsure on pricing.

A very modern building with several different sized exhibition halls. Can host many types of events. We have been there often.

I attended a 4 day conference and I am impressed by the modern and spacious interior. I am also impressed by the availability of washrooms, the speed of the wifi, and the connectivity via the Skyway. However, I am disappointed by the few dining options....More

Large, and certainly able to handle volume. Was here for a three day conference. Kind of feels like it is in the middle of nowhere and not too many places to go once you are out of the convention Centre. A little confusing to find...More
