Was there for my daughter's karate tournament......nice facility......air conditioning worked very well.....food options very limited & very expensive......cost might be ok for business meetings & events, but not for families traveling long distances for competition

This center is located in w as walking distance to kinkos, hilton, walgreens and the water taxi. The convention center is huge so you may want to leave some bread crumbs. .. just kidding. The conference rooms were pleasant and it is well air conditioned because during the warm months... you'll appreciate it.

The experience SEEMED flawless, from price to checkin to pickup, was wonderful. However, I take my car, and a few hours later, my car won't start. I call back, and explained that my car won't start, and asked whether there had been any issue with my car. The woman who answered acknowledged they had to jump it, and explained they... More

Love the layout of this convention center and the decor is really awesome! The carpet looks like underwater sealife. The Ball rooms were spacious and the meeting rooms and food vendors conveniently located but they need more restrooms on the second floor!

Spacious and easy to locate. Parking pricey.The walkway from the garage parking to the main hall is interesting. Located at the port in Ft.Lauderdale. I've attended many events here: the Home Show, educational events, car show. The outdoors is beautiful with seating ...sunny..breezes off the ocean...

They have bathroms every where. They have 3 different Huge rooms. I have been there this past weekend and the convention was held for... More

I have been here twice. Once for a car auction and once for a home show. Nothing outstanding. Just another convention center with a confusing parking garage. The one exception is the inconvenience of showing photo ID because it is located within the Port of Fort Everglades.

Very hard to find with no signage from any of the streets. Cramped location. Once you find the entrance to the garage, you have to go through security like you were boarding a cruise, complete with searching the car trunk, plus everyone in the car showing ID, and very long slow lines. The parking garage is dark, tight parking spaces,... More

Typical convention center, but food offerings here were awesome. Parking was minimal at $12 a day. Access was a pain though as you are entering the shipping port, so you compete with cruise traffic, and also have to go through security each day. The convention center staff were very accommodating to our asphalt group, I hope we come back to... More
