Came here for a graduation ball and was very happy with the facilities. Catered for a large number of people and did really well. Large open spaces, staff were good, food was good. Nice and close to the city.

This Convention center nicely accommodated around 1400 people including vendors, for a multitask meeting. Traffic flow in and out of the main area worked well, and the wide hallways likewise allowed easy movement between sessions. The restrooms seemed quite adequate to the attendee needs and...More

I have just left a conference at this facility. It is without a doubt the worst convention centre I have ever attended in my 35 year business career. The food was appalling with far less than adequate provided. Patrons were directed to queues to empty...More

It's a convention centre, airy, comfortable seats in theatres but not in meeting rooms. Applause for having enough toilets! We'll set up, wifi available but a bit weak.

The Nation's Capital has one of the worst conference facilities in Australia. I've been there a few times, this week most recently, and it is a venue that needs so much work that it's crazy to think that it's a relatively new building. I found...More

The convention centre was a great location for a conference. There were many rooms and theatres for break-out sessions. It was within close walking distance to accommodation venues also.

John Cleese and Eric Idle were brilliant, but the facilities and parking at the National Convention Centre were abominable. Long queues for everything, no pedestrian or traffic management. Yes, it's all part of the interminable Constitution Avenue redevelopment, but even a little bit of effort...More

Attended the food and wine expo and found the venue to be large enough, filled with natural light and well maintained. First time at the convention Centre and would be happy to come back for other events in future!
