AWCI Conference

Stayed at the Hyatt next door for the AWCI Conference. Centre was well laid out and easy access to all exhibitor booths with enough room to move around freely.

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.

Convenient to several major hotels and lots of restaurants. Not big enough for a major show but good for small to medium conferences and trade shows.

We recently had a nursing convention here. It's certainly a nice place to have a convention. The rooms are comfortable and there is lots of space. The location is great because it's close to plenty of shopping and restaurants. There's a Starbucks as well as an additional coffee shop/cafe. My biggest complaint is that there is no complimentary Wi-Fi. As... More

Have been to many conventions, company meetings, and coin shows here. Nicely laid out, restrooms easy to find, parking good and the location is excellent. Hotels and shops and restaurants nearby as is the Long Beach Aquarium and Long Beach Waterfront.

It's a great venue for any event right in the middle of downtown Long Beach where you have the beach, plenty to do during the day and evening, nearby airport, and a centrally located place for those visiting Los Angeles and Orange and San Diego Counties.

Believe me if you are an exhibitor and have been doing tradeshows here, you have noticed the difference. From the bathrooms, to the carpet to the meeting rooms to the ARENA which... More

I am a pastor with C&MA and we met here in May, 2015. It was conveniently located and many great places to eat nearby. I hope to visit again.

The Hyatt Long Beach Convention Center is the place to stay if you need immediate proximity to the Convention Center. As an added bonus, it puts you right in the heart of dozens of eateries, shops and attractions. The restaurant is also very good offering a fabulous buffet with made to order omelettes. The design is modern and clean.
