Saw a concert here. Easy entrance and exit. Plenty of room for concessions and restrooms were easy to get to and clean. Nice sound. No security issues. All around good place for a show.

I've been here twice for state competitions for my kids and both times was a good experience. Clean bathrooms, nice seating, easy access and plenty of vendors for food if you wanted to grab a bite to eat.

Plenty of seating at the convention center to watch performances. Only negative I can state, is that they need hand railing for all the steps on the floor level seating, as I watched a friend's elderly parent tumble down the steps this weekend.

Nice venue, meeting rooms close together from a central hallway but with plenty of space. Bathroom placement is obvious and close at hand. The parking garage is literally just out the door so very convenient. I was particularly impressed by the oversight of the IT...More

After the renovation the PCCC looks nice. Generally an okay place to do something depending on what the event it. It has various levels of success depending on the type of event. Don't expect anything too impressive, but it's still an okay place to go.
