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 The arena is a little bit outdated.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,

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

This was very disappointing situation their lack of technology and extremely poor customer service requires cash for parking one day credit card the next claiming that their credit card devices are working. This is the year 2016 technology is robust. It's an extreme hassle to be forced to go to an ATM get cash and come back to the garage... More

This convention center is good because there are wonderful hotels within walking distance to the center. The staff are very friendly. The biz rooms can be very cold so make sure you bring an extra shawl or sweater- brrrr.
