  • Been to hundreds of events at this place. Even saw Dizzy Gillespie play here in 1979!. What can one say, it is a large hall for rent.Seen better, seen worse. It's okay. 
  • Beautiful Convention Center - Great Staff, Amazing Food
  • Nice venue to hold events. The staff during our event was very friendly and helpful.
  • Great venues. Reasonable entry or vendor fees.
  • As an attendee of events and exhibitor at others I would say the Century Center is a pretty good venue. Events are usually smoothly run with almost enough hand dollies to help vendors get materials in & out. It is spacious and provides plenty of room for attendees to move around.
  • Went to an indoor car show here. It was really cool
