A large center with huge areas to exhibit and/or meet. I was here tending to evacuees during hurricane Harvey. Staff were amazing and the center seemed to be state of the art and conveniently located. Not much more I can say but I would entertain...More

The Brown Convention Center is an awesome location for multiple events. This place can accommodate a few different activities at the same time. Parking is a little tricky but available. Plus plenty of hotels near by.

Had an awesome time at the nurses conference. The center has walkways that connect it to two of the best hotels in Houston- Hilton and Marriott marquis. Walking distance to Minute Maid park and lots of places to eat. Good location and facilities.

Wonderful convention center. Very accessible, helpful staff, plenty of signage, the only complaint I had was that it was kept much too cold. Especially the lecture hall. It should not have to be so freezing cold

This place is huge! Was here for a convention, and wore flats most of the time, which meant my feet hurt for the majority of my trip. There are 4 restaurants with easy access from inside the center. The convention I went to was approximately...More
