I attended Trident University graduation. Love the design of this facilities. Great location. I do have a concern with, either the facility or those that rent the facility. There seem to be a real big misunderstanding that restrooms for such a large group are a MUST. The staff working the event sent people to another hotel, across the street or... More

Plenty of choices for dining just a block away from our hotel at The Regency. Nice downtown area to walk around.

I just attended a conference here. The meeting rooms were nice but the exhibition hall was a big of a hole...shabby, poorly kept and the bathrooms were dirty. The main problem was not having any idea of where to go. There was no signage and no directions and lots of other groups holding functions in the same space. Once I... More

The convention center is located next to many fine hotels, restaurants and close to the Waterfront. The room were spacious and clean. The onsite food and beverages were expensive. The coordination of our keynote speakers was fantastic. The multimedia presentation shined in the center's ballroom.

The Long Beach Convention Center is a basic convention center. The staff is great and very helpful. The location is convenient for hotels and restaurants. There are multiple loading docks so loading and unloading were efficient. If you are looking to have a convention in the greater LA area then this is a good spot in a safe neighborhood.

Not sure what you can say good or bad about a convention center - really comes down to whose show it is. Recently attended the NRF show and between both parties everything went smoothly. Plenty of room for the expo plus all the numerous breakout meetings. Nice outside area for the drinks receptions - but it was hot!!!

Attended AWHONN convention here, impressed with the entire facility: meeting rooms, main lobby, outdoor area, rest rooms- all clean and bright! Located in a beautiful downtown location near restaurants and waterfront! Loved it!

This feels old not sure if it is the sea air that make the place age or if in fact it is that old. There are some places near by to sleep and eat but i was happier to be on the road.
