I don't know where else to review this. We came into Cincinnati to see a football game and saw that Proof was on at the Energy Centre. What a fantastic time! So So So much fun! GO if you can!

A nice downtown convention center. Plenty of space, and the place was kept clean and maintained well. Plenty of security and parking was convenient, though pricey.

This is such a lovely convention center in downtown Cincinnati. Parking is a little pricey downtown, but the Convention Center is great for business, trade shows and events.

Just a short walk from the hotel I stayed in. The police were everywhere making sure we had no issues. I don't know if that is typical for the city but it was nice to see! The convention center itself is nice. I only got lost a couple of times but overall the layout is nice. Could have used a... More

I went here to attend Redsfest this year, as well as last year's MLB All Star Fanfest. Absolutely nothing to complain about here. Location is convenient in downtown Cincinnati with a parking garage right down the street. Building appears to be very well maintained.

A very nice venue located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. The hall is very spacious and has plenty of pay to park garages around it. It could use a little attention in spots. My daughter got on the elevator and her first word was sketchy. I agreed. Other than a few minor details a nice place and right in... More
