Great Conference Location-Great Staff, An Eventective User from Lexington, Kentucky

Would recommended this location for conferences, trainings. Great staff to work with.

Great Reunion Venue, An Eventective User from CLARKSVILLE, TN

The staff here is wonderful. They were helpful with a very quickly thrown together high school reunion. They will work with your budget and flucuating numbers. Our event did not end up being as big as we had thought it would be, but the space was great for us and we had an amazing time anyway. The facility it beautiful inside and out. The wait staff and bartender were also wonderful. Our only disappointment was the food. Definitely take the time to go to a tasting to make sure you are getting something you like. Overall a great experience and would highly recommend for any event.

The Perfect Venue, An Eventective User from Clarksville, Tn

The James E Bruce Convention Center was the perfect venue to have a wedding. The event coordinator listened to my concerns, thoughts, and ideas and transformed my wedding to my dream wedding everything was so beautiful. I emailed the event coordinator pictures of how I wanted to look like and well as speaking with her in person as well as on the phone and her and her team made it happened just the way I envisioned! I would defiantly recommend this venue to all brides! The food was absolutely fabulous I am still getting compliments on both the venue and the food!

Perfect conference and meeting venue, An Eventective User from Hopkinsville

There is no better venue within 100 miles than the BCC. The staff is friendly, helpful and caring. The building itself is so inviting and classy. I recommend everyone with even a thought of an upcoming event, to stop by the BCC. I promise you won't regret it!!
