“Good Concert Venue”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

I have gone to many concerts and love the space and the ability to go to the concerts. The building itself is old and not the most appealing. With the set up, it's better to be on the ground then in the seats. The best thing is the convention center and the outdoor events like Brat Fest and Band camp.

“Older facility but still great venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

I have gone to a variety of events at the Alliant and always had fun, from Mad City Women's Roller Derby to Shriner's Circus to business meetings to trade shows to The Wiggles concert. Lots of variety and excellent, top notch catering for business events. Staff is helpful with event planning. Like any older facility, could use more female restrooms(!). But we always have a good time as a family or business at events there.

“GREAT PLACE FOR GATHERINGS AND VENUES”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

Just had the opportunity to visit the Alliant center and hotels in area. this is an excellent place for meetings and venues- we will be booking ourselves for this location. easy parking, big halls, outside space, bathrooms, and excellent management to work with. Highly recommended

“Big rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

It's a great place for things like home shows, but it's really just a big box type building so I don't think it's great for intimate parties.
