The convention center was adequate and average. Nothing special here. Clean and spacious. The large upper room we were in had several large screens to view stage speakers and musicians by.

Big convention center with only the basics- nothing fancy. Few amenities and lacking in any decent food other then hotdogs and hamburgers. Cement floors. Escalators to second level which is just like the first. Annual boat, auto, and home and lawn show for public. Parking is across the street for underground or in many surface lots in a 4 block...

The convention center is in the popular Power and Light district in the middle of the city. Parking can be challenging however - most shuttle. Nice convention hall as halls go.

The space is large, but you have to pay to park and sometimes walk a ways in inclement weather to get to the venue. It really needs some updating as well.

The facility is very nice. However, signage is not very good and you can easily become lost. Signage needs to be visable outside or immediatelty as you enter the buildings. As with most convention centers it was way too cold in the buildings.

Was just here yesterday representing my organization at an information fair. Great facilities but I'm young and able to get around well. As there is plenty of walking it may be tougher for those as mobile. That being said it does appear to be very wheelchair friendly and is close to plenty of parking

This convention center was wonderfully laid out and easy to navigate. Plus, there are at least 4 hotels within a very easy walking distance. That is a really huge plus. A lot of convention centers have one hotel that's close and all of the others are blocks and blocks (or miles) away. The concession stands were a little lacking in... More

came here for a convention for veterinary professionals. They really need to work on their signage and entrances. My Uber driver dropped me off at what appears to be the correct address and entrance after circling around, but all the doors were locked. I ended up walking blocks and blocks to finally find the one entrance to the convention.

It's a convention center: big, variable room sizes, lot's of walking. The employees we encountered on the floor and entrances were nice. The employees we encountered at the food venues on the main exhibit floor were less personable. All in all, we found it to be a reasonable convention location, well located in downtown in downtown KC, not too difficult... More
