This was my first time visiting the convention center, I was here for the coin expo. I was able to park close by and walked to the event center, lots of employees in the center that were very polite and were able to direct me to the room where the coin show was taking place, very clean and well maintained....

It has a very nice layout. Parking is abundant ( for a fee) easy in and out. Main enterance has many, many steps and not well marked. The window views are great too.

There is little to rant and rave with convention centers. It really comes more down to what is near it, than what it offers. This convention center is conveniently located near the Pacific Aquarium and shopping outlets. Of course, avoid the restaurants in the area, as they are overly commercial and cater toward the lost traveler who lacks a discerned... More

The Venue: Mid-size compared to Staple Center. The arena is a little bit outdated. The seats are getting old and not much legroom. The Show: Disney On Ice - Definitely kids paradise. All their familiar Disney characters. Wish there is more interaction with audience. Or meet & greet with the Disney characters. It is too dark to take pictures with... More

The last event I attended at the Convention Center was a Food Show for work. Really enjoyed the different types of food along with different ways to cook it,

This is a nice average sized place where I went for doTERRA leadership conference. I like that it is on the waterfront and right next to my hotel the Hyatt Regency. It is close to so many eating establisments so you can get a nice meal between sessions

Wonderful place, we live right next door at Aqua.... sometimes the events get a little loud very early in the a.m. for conferences or very late w/ full concert sound system on the roof of the parking lot directly behind the buildings. Our fault I guess for not checking into that before moving in... Love the Christmas display and the... More

Even though I didn't spend a lot of time here, I attend the Miss California USA pageant and it was an elegant, classy location for such an occasion. Easy to find and plenty of parking for our event, we had no trouble finding our way to where we needed to go. This place is large and gorgeous and handled the... More

First Conference center ice been to in a while with healthy food: sandwiches served with grapes, gourmet salads. Thank-you for not serving hamburgers and hotdogs like everywhere else! Also clean building and BEAUTIFUL bathrooms. Building is very cold though...bring a coat!

Slightly tired convention center, dirty bathrooms, broken fountains, outrageous food prices, better than average staff in terms of helpfulness. Loading in and out as an exhibitor is as bad as any, loading docs are halfway blocked with building maintenance equipment, on an angle that made loading trucks in the rain a little dangerous. Took us 2 hours to get out... More
