I went to the exposition center for the supernatural convention in September 2017. I was pleasantly surprised to find it far less crowded than the previous year. At first it didn't make sense logically to me, because they had just as many fans as the previous year. However, on the second day, I realized the staff were far more prepared, and that's why it worked out this time. The SPN fandom conventions are notoriously large (which is the reason we switched locations in the first place). Even though it hadn't worked out so well two years ago at this location. The venue clearly did everything in their power to straighten out the kinks in their strategy (and it miraculously worked!) Against all odds, the staff members managed to utilize the screens in the main theater to full effect. They used it (rather brilliantly in my opinion) to keep the areas from crowding by controlling the flow. Since a large majority of fans could sit in the theater and wait for their ticket numbers to appear on screen. It meant people weren't being crowded into the main area like sardines (like last year). It was a very nice change of scenery to actually be able to walk through the main area and into the vendors room without fighting through a crowd. In fact, the times between photo ops and call-outs, caused some areas to look down right sparse. I wouldn't hesitate to come again if they continue to show such excellent leadership skills. I especially enjoyed the large array of vendors (including The New Leash on Life table). I really loved the service dog they brought from their organization, and getting a chance to contribute to such a wonderful charity. It certainly made the convention a much more pleasant experience! In fact, the only issue I had during the trip came from the theaters choice of stage lighting. I was sitting in the second row (so I should have gotten decent pictures), but the lighting made that difficult. I can't help but think I would have gotten better pictures with a cheaper ticket, and a seat farther in the back.

Nice Convention Center with closeness to hotels and plenty of parking. Had a large event and staff and maintenance were very helpful. Easy to get there by car and overall good location.

I'm rating this poor because it's missing a huge, HUGE piece. AN ELEVATOR! There is a ramp outside, but once you're inside, you have no way to get to the second floor. If there is nothing happening upstairs, that's fine... but if there is, you're SOL. There's only one bathroom so it's a little inconvenient, especially when the place is busy. There are very few rooms, so if you have an event where there is someone on stage, you'll hear it throughout the whole floor since it's all open. There are four rooms that can be closed off, but are folding walls, so they aren't sound proof in the slightest. The employees there did keep it clean and the food, while not great, wasn't too expensive.

This is the second time we were there to attend a convention. It's located next to several hotels and restaurants which is a big plus. It's not terribly big which is good but the main room can get very hot & stuff when filled with people, which the lobby area seems to always be very cold. The chairs that they use are very small & hard plastic and very uncomfortable to sit on for more then a few minutes.
