Some convention centers are so big and so badly laid out that it is impossible to find your way around easily. L A's seemed easy to manage...I never felt lost. good areas for mingling, food concessions were better than average, and parking was also clear to find and get around.

I have been here three times throughout the years, and was able to bring my 10 year old this year (hold your horses, yes, I get the cray cray)....he's a huge Stan Lee fan and I warned him about what he might see....Listen, you see far more on billboards in France (does France have billboards?), and aside from his initial...

This is a great space for the exhibitors since there is plenty of space. For those attending, not so much. Parking is incredibly confusing and overpriced or your park faaaar away. The a/c is not up to the task on a warm day. And the food selection is lousy and very expensive.

I visited for society meeting and exhibition. The buildings are so huge. It needs an attention, you don't miss your direction.

Less crowded but no less crazy than San Diego Comic Con. As a smaller con, you get a chance to talk to exhibitors and the guests. Cosplay was creatively amazing. Getting to meet artists and actors that I've long admired was fun and they genuinely seemed to enjoy it too. Parking was not bad this year which was a pleasant... More

Went there for a show as an exhibitor and they closed the parking so we had no visitors to our show! They apologized but that does not fix the financial loss. There is so much going on in the area with the Staples Center that it is a mess there all the time and traffic when those events let out... More

I was recently at the LA convention Center for the SWE Conference. The conference was great, but the food at the Center was extremely slow. It took an hour to get food. I thought of several ways this could have been improved on. I don't know why they the Center served food. It would have been way easier with box... More

The convention center worked well for the National SWE conference this past week but I do have to say, the fact that we had "Food Cards" was the worst thing possible. The lines in the cafeteria were so long people left to eat instead and the food was horrendous. If they work looking to make money off of the Society,... More

We went here for the Rock N Roll Half Marathon Health and Wellness Expo. The convention center is well marked and can easily house several events. Plan extra time if parking, as both the garage and convention center may require quite a bit of walking, depending on your destination. If you do park, check the closing time for that day,... More

Wifi access at the Convention Center is poor; paid access is absurdly high - $50 per day for exhibitors at the center. Otherwise, the LA Convention Center facilities are fine but not exceptional.
