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.

There are multiple entrances for this facility. It would be helpful to be marked better. The facility itself is clean and conveniently located.

Attended the World Tea Expo there May 2014. First time there. Great venue. A block from the beach and Queen Mary. Very airy lobby area, close by to excellent restaurants. Very freeway accessible for out-of-town visitors. Would love to come back for other events and spend more time in the area.

I was there for a medical conference and was pleasantly surprised with the Panini sandwich served in the main concourse. Much superior to most convention center food!

Nice display of new innovative improvements for your home. There were some outdoor items as well. Enjoyed the demonstrations and the newly improved gardening features that are specifically good for low maintenance landscaping. Best part,..Free Admission!
