Went here for the Travel and Adventure Show. Large place. Nice location, across the street from restaurants. Restrooms and clean and convenient. Should have better parking or access to parking. There is only 1 lane that goes into the parking structures. Check prices, some of the lots were more than the one associated with the convention center. Sometimes won't know... More

Close to the ocean and convenient to shoppng and restaurants. But with that comes all the expected and $$$ parking hassles. I got lucky and found a lot with an all-day flat rate of $5.00. I only walked 2(?) blocks, got to see some of the city and didn't have to que up to get in to and out of... More

This is a annual event for me and my wife. The convention center is the perfect location for this event. Parking is easy, right across the street. The Long Beach marina is also right across the street. Can't wait for next year. John & LynNita Ellis

This conference center looks really nice from the outside. Upon entering, you'll find a little cart cafe with seating on the first floor. The bathroom nearby the coffee and food? Six stalls in the women's. Really? So, you have thousands of people coming for a conference, you offer them food and endless coffee and the closest bathroom has only six... More

The convention center is huge and comfortable. In all the sessions I attended, there were no problems with noise from other sessions 'bleeding' through the walls. Concessions were pricey but offered a good variety of food. If you're a diet coke fanatic, bring your own.

We attended a travel expo at the LB convention center. We stayed at the Renaissance Inn which was fab, and right across the street. The hotel has the closest Star Bucks if you need a fix. There are lots of eating establishments within walking distance, and they do allow you to bring your own food. We did not know this... More

Small CC comparing to others in SoCal. Inflow underground parking can be slow in the morning. You can park at nearby uncovered lots and walk over. Less hassle and nice surrounding to take a longer walk up the stairs.

huge convention place, for 10 years I've been coming to this place, enjoying the ISSE beauty show, and the only thing I dislike... is the food hall... not enough healthy options...
