I guess this is decent for a convention center. More utilitarian than pretty, but it does the job very much.

Excellent facility, kept spotless. I felt safe here. Good meeting rooms, some good on-site choices for snacks and coffee, and a superb and well-stocked visitors desk with knowledgeable staff.

I attended a large conference here recently, and while the center itself was fine, it was a decent walk from any restaurants. The building could use an extra restaurant and/or coffee shop - the Dunn Bros. and the craft bar & lounge were both overwhelmed because no one had anywhere else to go. There wasn't a lot else to do... More

The Convention Center was used for our business trip. There thousands of people there and the convention center staff was still able to serve lunch quickly and efficiently which impressed me. The space is huge and it's easy to get a little bit lost in.

The convention center can hold reasonably large groups. But that's about where the positives end. Onsite food options are lacking. Spaces to sit down and meet are nearly impossible to find, with an almost complete absence of benches and chairs in the open spaces of the convention center (aside from a few wooden benches on the main floor lobby near...

The Convention Center has been the location of the MN Ag Retailers Expo for over 6 years. The rooms are more than large enough to have the booths and equipment of our industry.
