I've both worked here and attended events here. It is clean, and the staff is knowledgeable. It's easy to get to from downtown.

This is a good convention center in the heart of downtown Providence. Parking is convenient, and the facility is in very good shape.

If you stay at the Omni, you don't need to go outside to get to the RICC, and the venue is clean and modern. Parking is kind of expensive ($15 for a day pass, more overnight).

This was a good time beyond some planning and logistical issues. The space not conducive to such a large crowd. Opening early and controlling the number of patrons entering at a time would really help with all bottlenecks. Overall an amazing experience.

The RI convention center is a nice place especially when they hold big events. The only bad part is that when they do have events they are usually really crowded.

Big sign at the front door, no outside food or drink allowed. You are hostage to the coffee at the snack bar. Worse coffee every and the Convention Center has Dunkin Donuts as a sponsor. The coffee is not Dunkin Donuts I am sure?

A great place for a conference with lots of space for exhibits and meeting rooms. Multi level with easy access. Parking garage attached with numerous hotels and restaurants nearby.

Huge convention center room didn't feel over crowded. AC was on which was nice in the summer. Would return for another event.

This convention center sits in the middle of everything! The layout of the center is easy to navigate, and you can go from multiple hotels without leaving the building. Providence Place Mall, another huge bonus, as there are many restaurants and terrific shops! Great city...More
