Read what one of our previous guests said about the State Fair of West Virginia Event Center:

“Your facility staff also provided excellent support throughout the process; from our initial planning stages to the actual event, to setting up tents, the banquet hall, shipping arrangements, the salon seating and receptions throughout the week, your staff went above and beyond the terms of our contract to assist us in making this a memorable Convention. Additionally, not only were the buildings clean and modern, they exceeded the needs of a group of our size, making it comfortable for our various sessions during the week.’
