Recommendations

Large Conference, An Eventective User from Acworth, GA

The Gwinnett Arena is a great place for large conferences to be held. I've been to several conferences there and the arena provided such a pleasant environment that allowed me to enjoy every conference. The staff has always been nice and easy to work with. The arena grounds are well kept and there's plenty of parking available to accommodate large crowds. There's also multiple entrance and exit points into the parking lots to allow traffic to continue to flow. Close parking is available for those that can't walk long distances. And there's a drop-off lane for those who are extremely limited in walking. It's easy to find and it's easy to get in and out of. There are also places within walking distance if there's a break in the conference. The inside of the arena is nicely decorated and well maintained. There are food venues open inside the arena to provide snacks, drinks, and whole meals. I have been very satisfied with every food item I've purchased. There's also plenty of room to set up tables to sell products or advertise upcoming events. There is plenty of seating in the arena for any event, with VIP seating available on the floor as well. It's easy to see the stage from any seat, so there isn't a bad seat in the house. And the seats are comfortable enough for those long-winded speakers that sometimes appear in conferences. The restrooms are kept very clean and well stocked even when there are large crowds. And there are plenty of bathrooms, so even the women's bathroom line isn't too long.
