The large meeting halls have good access and ample seating. The venue was great and so was the service there. Our event should have provided better maps so we could get there without wandering all over hell's half acre. This is a nice building for a conference. There are many nice sized rooms and lots of poster rooms downstairs. I... More

Loved this venue! Plenty of parking and very scenic. We used a smaller auditorium with plush theatre seating which was very nice. Beautiful area and lots of restaurants in the Pike area.

From Cirque du Soleil, to the annual ISSE Show, Latina beauty show (I'm also a licensed cosmetologist), Toyota Grand Prix expo, ASR show (early 90s), LB Marathon expo... The convention center has lots of brochures and magazines for visitors to take. Don't be shy about... More

This is a very average convention center in the middle of a really boring part of SoCal. I have no idea why the Convention I had to attend would choose Long Beach, unless it was cheap. The convention center was fine, little fanfare and nothing special, but nothing bad either. The bad part is having to spend a week in... More

Lots and lots of space abounds. The best part is the amazing new capabilities of the Arena. If you have a good sized conference coming up, do let the Convention Representative show you how they can transform this space from a hockey arena to a classy and intimate hall for formal celebrations.

The Convention Center is beautiful and very centrally located. Had a great time!!! We were able to walk to the restaurants we wanted, walk along the pond outside and had spectacular views of the harbor.
