    I can't say enough good things about the Convention Center. Our manager, Jessica, went above and beyond to make my dreams a reality. We had so many decor options to choose from that were included in the cost of the room. I am still receiving compliments on how good the food was. We had a lot of unique requests and they never hesitated to make it happen. I loved the big space and how it truly is a white canvas. I would recommend to ANY bride in Sioux Falls. The dance floor was so nice and big, which I absolutely loved. I wish I could relive this day over and over. We served creamy gouda chicken, tuscan tortellini, and red wine steak medallions. We also had the kids buffet, which they let us bring out later during the dance (all our drunken friends really appreciated it). Only complaint was a grumpy bartender, in which everyone just went to the other bartender who was much nicer.

    The convention center was already booked when we checked them out. We ended up finding another location but still needed to find catering. We decided to use their services as they provided place settings, servers, bartenders and bar, EVERYTHING. It was such a relief to not have to individually find every small piece of the puzzle. Their staff was attentive and asked throughout the night if everything was going well. I would highly recommend them, AND if you get the buffet the Tuscan Chicken Tortellini is AMAZING!

    Thank you for the kind review. We love working with wedding couples and helping to make their dreams come true. We wish you many many years of happiness as you begin your new life together.

We love working with the team over the Convention center! They are very personal and have great attention to detail! This is a great venue to work with in the Sioux Falls Area!

Pinnacle Productions Pinnacle Productions Wedding DJs

We at Pinnacle Productions have worked several weddings and other events with the professional staff from the Sioux Falls Convention Center. We love the ability to work in a clean slate with elements you can't get at every event center. High ceilings, ice sculptures, and an open feel add some unique and fun aspects for wedding decor. Each individual event is given great care and planning with their staff is a very easy experience. They have the ability to pull off large gala affairs to simple celebrations with ease and creative flair. We love the Sioux Falls Convention Center and look forward to many more parties over the coming months.
