Attended the IA (International AG) show at the Long Beach Convention Center and I will say one of the better places I have attended a show at. Liked the restaurants within walking distance, also the Long Beach Aquarium and marina, and who doesn't like Cali weather when you are used to snow this time of year.

Nice modern look but was disappointed by the lack of staff that was present or was not present. Been to a lot of convention places and this is about middle of the road

My wife and I have been here numerous times, we have booths at various trade shows held at the Long Beach Convention Center. It is close to a whole row of restaurants within walking distance and of course, we have the Queen Mary, beaches, Seaside Village, Lighthouse, beautiful paths to walk and ride bikes. Unfortunately some of the shows are... More

Came for the ASCP convention. Just next to the Hyatt Regency and across from the Pike. 2 stories of conference rooms with a small food court on the first level. Stairs, elevator and escalator make it accessible for all. Very nice facility close to all the Long Beach attractions. Would return for another conference.

This is a nice convention center. It is right next to the Hyatt and within a short walking distance to other hotels. There are numerous restaurants and night life establishments across the street.

Not sure what else to say but it does have some nice interactive displays with maps to help find your way. The various exhibit and room areas are pretty spread out so it can be confusing. The place is in good shape, there are plenty of areas to sit and chat with people outside the rooms/exhibit areas and even some... More

Have come here for a number of conventions, both education and travel-oriented and enjoyed all of them. Parking's not unlimited but you won't spend an hour looking for your car either. Surrounded by fine hotels and walking distance from the New Pike and Rainbow Lagoon, a highly pleasurable place to attend a conference.

I attended a conference here in Long Beach in October. The problem with many convention centers are that they are very large and difficult to navigate around. This conference center was nicely organized and easy to find the rooms I needed to be in. The rooms were clean and spacious and the temperature was controlled nicely. There were a variety... More
