The best place for meetings or conventions in the Inland Empire has got to be the riverside convention center. This is an amazing conference and convention center located in the heart of the city of Riverside. It is within of walking distance of everything a person could need. Right across the street is a Marriot for those who will need a place to stay. Down Main and Market is the myriad of restaurants and shops in little plazas. Downtown Riverside is also a very beautiful place to go on a walk at night or day. This convention center is located in an amazing and beautiful area. The inside of the building is also stunning. It is very clean and organized, a well maintained building helps take the edge off of a potentially heated conference. The staff was also very friendly and prompt when setting up for our conference. They were very good at checking on us if there was anything we had needed. It was amazing how even during our breaks they would be sure to straighten up the meeting room and re-stock everything we needed such as water or pens and paper. Granted, this has not been my first time to this specific conference center. This was perhaps my fifth or sixth time here, but the experience has not changed since the first time. It is easy for me to understand why the higher ups always choose this place when holding a big conference or meeting, it is without a doubt amazing!
