Had a chance to catch Florida/Georgia Line in concert at the Reno Events Center, & I've gotta say, I was really surprised at how nice & professional the setup was. Sound system, sight lines, & overall ambiance were on par with much bigger & more prestigious venues. If you've got a chance to catch a concert here, do it!

Went to see an 8 PM show and parked at the Bowling Center next Door. Parking was supposed to be free and it was NOT. Rode the elevator down to the main level of the Bowling Center and the only open room was the Bowling Museum. The Reno Event Center was not yet open for the show, so we thought... More

I have been there several times for various venues. For trade or shopping it is set up very well and convenient. For entertainment it is a poor venue. Flat floor seating with poor sound. Good if you like looking over or around the person in front of you.

i just got back yesterday from the R.O.S.E International Doll show in Layton, UT. Layton is not far from Salt Lake City and there is a shuttle to take you from the airport to the hotel (didn't use it so I don't know if there was a fee). The conference and trade show were in the conference center attached to... More

I love this venue for concerts, it's small and so all seats are good. The staff is really nice and on this concert the staff was especially cool as they let the attendees take pictures and videos right in front of stage before asking us to return to our seats. As a huge fan I really appreciated this as it... More

Attended the 1st Big Sky Basketball Tournament held in Reno and at the Events center. Not a bad facility at all. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Seats are not the best for basketball as they start about 30 feet back from the court. Over all though it was a decent facility. Concession prices are steep but they do serve... More

We attended the Beth Moore Living Proof Live event here. It was a really nice smaller venue. There is an easy access parking facility right across the street.

I saw the Reno Bighorns basketball team there. They put on quite a show. There was action at every time out. The seats were comfortable and everyone had a good view. It can hold about 7,000 people. Everything was clean and modern.

First off we had difficulty just finding the place. With so many lights and other distractions we walked around a little bit just trying to find it. SECOND we paid $50 for general admission instead of $20 for the bleacher seats so of course when we walk in NO ONE is checking tickets for people entering the floor. Needless to... More

I attended a couple of Big Name entertainment shows here. The acoustics were disappointing - particularly when listening to someone who's a Platinum entertainer with current hits. I'd go back for a really good entertainer but would expect to come out disappointed.
