Of the major Southern California convention centers I've had the experience of working at: Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Anaheim, Long Beach was a treat. Colorful and well-maintained, it was a joy to work at. The city of Long Beach is very nice, too. Hope to return.

Easy walking distance from hotels. Parking is a bit tricky but walking or taking a shuttle is easy. Nice areas to visit around the Convention Center.

Nice meeting rooms but lots of walking. Beautiful views from the promenade. There is a distance between the convention centre and the arena for large events and can be confusing to find your way around. Better signs are needed. But centre is very clean and food concessions are good and handy

The lobby area was beautiful, with plenty of coffee and delicious fast food. The restaurant Bogart was very efficient and conveniently located, with few, but delicious, selections. The main arena area was very comfortable and was easily entered without long lines.

Good seats - there were over 5000 of us and the sound and lighting were great - and the restrooms were clean and able to accommodate the crowd.

The Convention center was just close by the hotel. It is a large building with all the facilities to accomodate big conferences with many participants

The arena is large and fits thousands of people. Exiting the parking lot is always an issue as there is a large amount of people trying to exit at the same time.

A great place for concerts or conventions! Right in the center of downtown Long Beach. Across the street from hotels and restaurants. Plenty of room. There are some bad seats behind the stage sometimes. Limited parking. Nice banquet halls.

Attended our annual conference and this is located near waterfront in an area that has a number of restaurants and some shops. Easy access and nice views. the Hyatt is adjacent. We stayed a few blocks away and was easy walking distance. Facility was clean and well-staffed.
