Nice place for a Cheer competition. Roomy, good parking area (not a long walk to center), large area waiting area that is very bright due to all the windows. We've been in larger places but this is a solid place to visit and compete.

I came here for shamrock marathon expo and it was a busy event. The parking lot is more than sufficient for any event. It has a few levels and plenty of facilities. The building itself has a nautical vibe with a modernized feel to it. It's right near Atlantic avenue and a police station so watch the speeding. You are... More

The Convention Center is large and can accommodate any size group. There are small suites, ballrooms, and expansive exhibit space. The staff are fabulously friendly and accommodating. For groups seeking an environmentally friendly environment, the convention center is also LEED certified.

The place was clean, plenty of parking but just can't get past the cost of the vendors inside as well as the entrance fee to a cheer competition. Glad it is our last visit to this place. Just be ready to... More

The new convention center is a big plus for this community. A great looking building that is being well cared for by people who want to keep it as an excellent venue. My kudos to the staff.

Good food at a decent price for a convention center. Very clean, well organized, plenty of parking. Went for a car show and have been to many trade shows and this was a good event.
