Convention Complex Services
“This place is massive, you will walk A LOT just to get into the various venue spaces. It’s a clean nice building located near parking and most restaurants are a block or more away. We attended Transworld here and it was a never-ending space for a massive convention. There is also a comfortable theater, we attended The Vampire Circus in the theater. I’m tall w/ arthritis, leg space and comfortable seats are important. Leg space was pretty good, not tight but legs brushed the seat in front. Sat in the seat for 2.5 hrs comfortably..” – Lucy J.
