The Durham Convention Center is part of the Marriot Hotel building and is a sizable location to hold any event. It is modern and well decorated with enough rooms spaces and dividers to set up for any activity. We were hosted by the Duke Children's Hospital Children's Miracle Network and the event area met and exceeded all expectations for the event. Located in downtown Durham with a large parking garage conveniently located directly across the street, the convention center sits within walking distance of several great restaurants and eateries. The downtown area is filled with buildings both old and new that add a modern yet nostalgiac touch to the local area.

Once in a while i think twice in a year, the gem show stalls are here. Water fountain and chess board there are good when you want to spend little time outside. parking is little difficult , need to park across the street most of the times. facilities inside are good.

This place is hard to find because it is not right on the corner. It sits back from the corner and there's a little park or garden in front of it. The best way to locate is to look for the Marriott, it's right next to it and I think they are connected. Everything went well and the staff was very nice and helpful.

Great food & service! Catfish, collards, fried chicken, potato salad, cornbread, and all the cobbler you can eat! Snacks during our breaks, and a comfortable setting. And if you asked for something the staff would go out of their way to get it for you, if possible. Very enjoyable location...not far from the train station, either!

I travel to conference centers across the country for work. My company is currently at a Conference & Expo at Durham Convention Center & brought complex machinery that required hours of on-site setup. Ryan, Parker and the rest of the operations staff have absolutely bent over backwards to accommodate us and our very unique & in some ways operationally disruptive needs. People make the experience & they have gone above and beyond what’s expected and have been the most friendly and helpful conference center staff I have come across yet!

My daughter recently had a dance competition there, her and another young lady left their tap shoes behind. Called and spoke to a gentleman, Nick, who located both pairs and shipped them immediately back to us! They arrived in time for their tap class that week! Nicks service was above and beyond. Great experience.

We we’re very excited to host our wedding at the Durham Convention Center, but unfortunately the current situation got in the way of that happening. The entire staff was very friendly and genuinely cared as they were with us from the very start. Aisha, Hannah, and Nick were beyond helpful and tried their best to tailor to our needs and preferences. My family and I are very grateful to have worked with them. We wish the situation could have been different and allowed us to have our wedding here. I definitely recommend this venue in every way!

My daughter had a dance recital there and I was impressed with the size and cleanliness of the facility. Lots of nearby parking and walking distance to many local restaurants.

Can't say enough about the facility and the staff. Was there recently to attend Sirius March Madness. The team there were efficient, friendly and kept things moving along like a well oiled machine. When I got home from my travels I realized I had left something behind. I thought it might be in a conference room but wasn't sure. So I took a shot in the dark and phoned them up (after hours) leaving a voicemail describing the item and figuring "never getting it back". The next day the team there had responded back, saying they had it and where did I want them to send it. Not even a week later I got my item back, no postage due. Love that the total experience there was so well done and the return of my item was the icing on the cake.

The renovations are nice, and the AV company they use was very responsive. Not sure if staffing issues are causing an issue with service but we had to reach out to the event manager multiple times to get refills on the drink station.
