I went and took pictures of the Wedding expo and have to say they couldn't have picked a better place even if they tried.

Displays are well spaced and offer good people traffic flow. Booths are all populated with sales and service people who are helpful, not overbearing. The facility has multiple clean... More

There is no good place to park and the building is huge. You will have to walk, no matter where your event is located. If there is designated parking garage, it is not clearly marked. Street and other parking are extremely limited.

I have been to this convention center for 7 years for my son's gymnastics meet. This facility is modern and bright! KCC sits right next to an observation ball with 360 degree views of the the city. The food service had something to offer for everyone with many healthy options. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked - no severe... More

We have been to several different events held here, health & wellness, business dinners, Christmas and charity events. We have not been disappointed, good parking, very clean and easy to get around. Good safety for downtown events, well lit. Unfortunately, we have moved out of state. To answer suitable for all ages depends on the event.

Living in K'ville I have been here for quite a few different events. Their staff is always friendly and helpful. It's a great venue for anything. With the ability to cut the room to a smaller size or open it up for a huge affair.
