The convention center is in a beautiful location, on the Tampa Riverwalk. I discovered a covered patio on the second floor, overlooking the river. It was a great place to relax between meetings, with a wonderful cool breeze. There is a desk inside with information on things to do in Tampa- the staff is very knowledgeable and can help with activities for family members while others in meetings.

We attended a music education event here recently. The center is nice and there is a lot to do nearby. One good tip I can offer is to leave your car here and take the free streetcar to all the nearby areas like Ybor City. The parking is $12/day which is comparable to other nearby lots. The parking is open 24 hours per day and uses the Park Mobile app or a machine. You can walk to bars, restaurants, and other attractions.

I should’ve checked the weather prior to planning. The rain storm kept me from attending the event I had bought tickets for. Otherwise I believe it would have been a great trip.

Was here for the Florida Bar Exam. A comfortable, clean and modern facility that served its function extremely well. The convention center workers were friendly and helpful.
Parking is nearby in the garage. While easy to get to, the payment method is a tad complicated.

It's always a great experience at the TCC. Easy accessible parking and staff that is on top of everything. Right downtown with plenty of restaurant options or you can just take a break and sit by the Hilsborough River to relax. We did not stay in a hotel downtown this year after finding a better option on Rocky Point but still a great area to be in and a first class facility.

Couldn't find an archival record of past events...so...I (foolishly) called to ask if the archive was available.
I was interrogated..."Why do you want that?" (the question: Why would the Convention center hide it's past events?, never came up.
I'm an attendee...this is how your attendees will be treated.
Still don't understand why an archive of past events is considered unusual...it's mind-bendingly absurd...literally no reason for not doing it and every reason for posting an historical archive.
