Drive in by the Olin drive entrance, lines are usually shorter and many times you can get closer to the building in the back parking lot. We go the Midwest Horse Fair, RV Show, Garden Show, Shriners Circus and much more.

Huge facility. The staff works hard to make conventions go well. The food served is delicious. The meeting facilities are good, although sometimes it can get stuffy in the rooms. The only downfall is the traffic on the beltline getting to and from the center.

We had a large group who saw the Harlem Globetrotters. This is great family fun and somehing for all ages. People participated, the ball game was good, and our seats were right on the floor - easy for the youngest to see everything.

We attended the Reebok CrossFit Games at the Alliant Energy Center. The Games were fantastic, but the venue needed some attention beyond what the organizers could provide. For starters, the food vendors were jammed into a small corridor so there were long lines and limited...More
