  • although there were only allowed 2 spectators per family due to COVID they were well organized to stay with CDC guidelines. Felt very safe. It was great. Kept everyone out of the rain also.  more »
  • Had a great time, plenty of parking. Vendors in the parking lot, as well as inside. Couldn't really ask for a better venue.  more »
  • I have been here at least 4 times at around spring of the year for a business convention with partners and guests from in and around the area. It has a nice outside area by the beach where you can watch the water and nature. Inside, it's a huge space for at least 3,000 people or so. Concessionaires are inside to provide for some food. But you can always choose to go to other nearby places. There's always ample parking.
  • Wonderful ! We had a great time visiting the convention center for the boat show, and even with the crowds, parking wasn't too difficult. The building is beautiful, with both escalators and elevators, and of course wide stairwells, to access the upper level. I understand the theater is very nice also, although we didn't get a chance to see on this trip. Next event!
