I went to a guitar show here in October. It is one of the biggest of its kind. The parking was close easy and only $5. The show was large and took up several rooms. The halls were clean as were the bathrooms.i had a great time and no complaints of any part of the show or the center.

Went to a conference at the Convention Center. It was my second year at this conference. The Center is clean and well maintained. Great place to have a conference.

I bring my grand daughters here every year for the convention- parking price is reasonable, the bathrooms are clean & not too big to walk around.

Came here for a convention. Very clean inside! Even the bathrooms. Food service is good. Snack bar employees were very helpful and thoughtful. They said they don't have specialty flavors for coffee, but they brought them in special for the event that we attended.

Parking was a little crazy at the event we went to, but it was a nice place, with quick access from Cowboy Stadium and the main road from the stadium to the freeway.

It's your typical convention center-although a bit dated. I have been to several events hosted here and my only complaints are the wifi, the dim lighting, and the food. Not everyone likes hot dogs and pretzels. Parking is adequate but the entry is up a bit of a walk up an awkward ramp-not so friendly for older visitors, wheelchairs, or... More

This was the location of the Univ of Missouri alumni association pre-game rally. There were 2 rooms needed for different crowds and everyone fit comfortably. The buffet food was above average for buffet food.

Staff has always been helpful. Pretty good options in the layout and near a lot of things. My only complaint is that they have no way for you to put signs or room identification anywhere in the building. Seems like that would be logical, but they aren't interested in fixing that problem (and they won't let you hang signs.

We're glad you enjoyed your time in Arlington. We encourage you to provide input to show management for the event you were at the ACC for regarding the room identification.
