Been to many shows at this place. It is very nicely maintained and a great place to rent if you need a large venue. Most businesses use it for conventions or shows. Schools are using it for dances and proms.

The Convention Center is in a wonderful location. We were there for a conference, and there was plenty of room for displays, meetings, registration, and sessions. The space is nicely decorated and restrooms were clean and conveniently located. It was a wonderful facility.

This convention center is a good place for a professional society meeting. Big without being too huge, it can handle a good-sized convention. The Tourist Information Center inside was short of information, being more interested in selling sandwiches than in providing maps, etc. Bummer.
