Great Place for a Trade Show

I've been attending a trade show for an organization for over 20 years at this Convention Center. They do an outstanding job although their food prices are very high.

We went to the Arnold Sports Festival. My husband was competing. This facility is world class. There were a lot of options for restaurants within the building and lots of restaurants that were walkable in the vicinity of the convention center.

The location and building design are a bit odd. The new garage and exhibit space are very nice. We have attended several trade shows here and approve of the updates and additions to the space. We can't wait for its next construction completion.

In town for the AAA Great Vacations Travel Expo, this was my home for 4 days. In the middle of a greatly appreciated renovation, the Convention Center made access from the Hilton as painless as possible. Good directions and staff to help guide us. Looking forward to seeing the new center in January 2018.

Was given tickets to the AAA Travel show and took my over 18 daughter. She had never been to any Expo like this before and was amazed at the number of participants. They always offer bags to carry away travel books and advice from travel companies. I weighed what she had when we got home-20# of stuff. All of which... More

Ok, geek moment: I'm a huge fan of Travel Channel's Expedition Unknown. The convention center had the AAA travel/vacation show today, and brought in the host, Josh Gates. Thrill! He was a great speaker, and a great story teller. We walked away inspired to plan our own next great adventure. If you are in the area, plan a diversion to... More

This one is obvious, the GCCC has some of the largest events in the world here. The biggest is the Arnold Sports Expo. People from all over the world attend this event, bringing in millions of $ in revenue for the city. It also attracts Comic Con, Tattoo festival, among others. You will walk and walk around this venue, so... More

I've visited the convention center a few times in the past few years I've been living in Ohio. It is a great location, very spread out, lots of room for multi-conventions to happen at once and overall a great layout even if it is very spread out altogether. It is under construction at the time being but it doesn't really... More

I look forward to seeing the new building when it's done. As it is, there's plenty of places to eat near by, and that's important for convention centers.
