The Tacoma Convention Center is an outstanding venue to hold any size event. You will find this facility to be much more affordable than similar size facilities in Seattle and much nicer too. We have held the WA State Elementary Chess Championships at this venue...More

Been here for many different events. Lots of spaces and options- parking is a bit crazy. Rooms can be transformed so many ways. Its a great center in the middle of town within walking distance to many eats and places to visit.

I've only attended functions; I've never rented space from them. This is one of the nicest convention centers between Portland to Seattle. The building is modern, big and well laid out. It's in a beautiful part of Tacoma with a great view of Mt. Rainer...More

Came here for the 2016 NWAC Volleyball Championship. This is a very nice up to date facility and the space for the championship was great! Parking was convenient and reasonably priced.

Very modern building and a great space (we attended a pinball convention). The restaurant had decent fast food for a good price.

The space is great for meetings/conventions. Be aware of needles spotted along the grounds/benches outdoors. Been here several times over the years and I feel bad for the employees having to tell attendees "no outside food allowed when the restaurant is open" as the rule...More

Recently attended the Creating Keepsakes convention there. Great venue, security staff very friendly and helpful. Food vendors were reasonable, closed too early though and opening too late.

Attended the 2015 Univera Convention. Its a nice venue with lots of parking options. You will have to pay. Look for a garage with a daily rate rather than parking at the hotel or short term spaces. It will save you money.
