  • The location of the convention center is near the lake offering great views. My opinion is solely based on my experience at the Home and Garden show 2019, which I visited. The show itself was rather small, in my humble opinion, but was well organized. the security guards at the gate kept us all in check and there were no disturbances. I noticed a food and beverage area for those visitors in need of refreshments and food. I enjoyed the art on the center's walls just as much as the participating companies trying to attract my attention. The parking lots is adequate and there are numerous restrooms and water fountains. The center is wheelchair accessible.
  • The Bayfront Convention Center is a hub for a variety of large attractions and events along the bayfront of Lake Erie. I visited during the Home & Garden Expo. Vendors filled the entire convention center and various shows were going on during the event. A snack bar is located in the convention center for snacking and fast food. The convention center is located on a single, ground-level floor. The convention center is easy to maneuver for those in wheelchairs. VIEWS 5/5: The Bayfront Convention Center contains many large windows looking into the Erie Bay, marina and the lake itself. A sidewalk loops the convention center providing for a beautiful walk. CLEANLINESS: 5/5 The convention center is clean and bright. For the number of people at the convention center, it was quite clean. RESTROOMS: 5/5 Large restrooms with numerous urinals and stalls are available throughout the convention center. A few family/private restrooms are available throughout the center. PARKING: 4/5 Several large parking lots are available in front of the convention center. Arrive early as these lots fill up quickly. It may be a struggle to find parking as the day goes on. Parking was free for this event. ADDITIONAL AMENITIES: 5/5 Two hotels are attached to the Bayfront Convention Center for those attending for multiple days. I'm anxious to attend other events at the convention center.
