“As a convention Venue the TOPS”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We attend the CHAP homeschool conference here every year (since 2002). This is not a flashy overstimulating experience but a clean down home straight forward venue. There is plenty of room for educational sessions and vendor tables - both of these a must for a group of homeschoolers. The Food court is not too expensive and offers both fast and tradidtional hot food items. My favorite this year was the pasta grill.

“great place”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Come here every year for fire expo and really enjoy this place and its ability to fit almost 17,000 people in it at a time. Come here for the show and the food isn't that great from the concession stands that's why I bring my own food and drink.

“This place is HUGE!!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Attended the AKC National Championships held there in late March (Agility, Rally and Obedience). Great venue, plenty of crating space, loads of room for each of the sports as well as vendors. Agility was in a completely separate area from Rally/Obedience; their crating area was clear on the other side of the vendors. Great location, easy off the highway and easy to find. Would go back there if this event were held there again!

“Good place for national dog show but....”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Spacious for rings- footing a bit uneven and dusty. Bad thing was no convenient potty area for dogs, hard to get to different floors in main arena- not conducive to mobility challenged people,
