... otherwise there's not much to be said for this place. Parking can be tough, and there's not much of interest in the immediate area beyond a Wal-mart (and the "people of Wal-mart that come with it).

From the very first contact, until the day of the event - everything went smoothly.

We needed space to host a company meeting for 150 people. Becky, Sarah and Mike provided excellent service. They met with us prior to the event to give input on how the room could be arranged and to address possible concerns.

The day of the event, Mike was making sure the food and beverages were full and to ensure we didn't have any technical difficulty with the AV equipment.

A sign had been prominently placed to direct our employees up the elevators or stairs.

The food was fantastic. Yes, it was just snacks, but they were so yummy and employees were talking about it the next day. We had a cookie assortment, kettle chips (wow!), chocolates, coffee, water and sodas. No-one went away hungry and the cookies and chips were delicious.

At the conclusion of our meeting, our COO complimented me/the team for how smoothly everything went. We couldn't have been more pleased.

A great family Rodeo at the Penrose Event Center. Plenary of parking. Dinner is available too. A traditional American west opening with an invocation, salute to the country and then the action starts! There are vendors, activities for the kids, a parade, a live band and a hot air balloon glow. Enjoy it is a blast.

My husband and I are soon to "retire" so we are looking for a way to be out of our local snow and inclement weather 4-6 mos of the year.. we love to motorcycle the countryside and plan to travel. The most convenient and affordable way would be for us to purchase a TOYHAULER TRAVEL TRAILER.. today was delightful in that we viewed and walked through many Brands, Styles and diverse Floor Plans at moderate prices that are doable. The Sales Representatives on hand were very knowledgeable and eager to help.We had a good idea going in what we would be looking at, and found an option that was not on the list. We will continue to shop the shows this year,but found this to be a good venue overall.

Rodeo was great and entertaining.

Center was OK food choice limited and expensive (best to eat prior)

Parking was free and Seating can be crowded

But the rodeo was great!
