    Way too much room to walk around here. My feet always hurt after a trade show here. Have lunch in the cafeteria, lots of food choices but it will cost you almost $20.

    The parking situation left much to be desired. Always come early to the event. The building(s) itself is quite nice and open. The opposite of the parking lot.
