Went to the FL Keys with friends. We flew into FLL and had a can rental at Thrifty. The FL PlatePass program is a scam between the state and rental car companies including Thrifty. Yes, I said scam. And, yes, I read all the info about the program and what it meant. Here’s my specific experience. I arrived at Thrifty... More

Love the billfish fountain out front. Attended a week long convention March 2015. Great audio visual capabilities. Spacious and multi-purpose rooms - some with views of the cruise ship port. I really liked the water coolers instead of bottles of water. Food and beverage service was what I expect at a convention center. Overall friendly staff. Clean restrooms. Walked from... More

The exhibition hall as well as food vendors are great. Nice variety of food and choices that the convention center puts on. However the parking is horrible. The labeling and signs inside do not adequately direct you to to convention center bridge. And the parking space filled up by 1 pm which is most unfortunate for those that come in... More

What an amazing space! I've been to the Convention Center on numerous occasions. I've worked there for companies with their exhibits, attended trade shows and exhibitions, gone to seminars there and have even been there for black tie galas. The beauty of the facility is that it can accommodate virtually anything! It's a beautiful, well-maintained space. There is ample parking... More

This place was beautiful! Clean and very well kept. The parking was very expensive! we were there for a 2 day event and it cost us more to park than we thought was reasonable, but really had no choice. The coffee shop on the first floor had great coffee, but the prices again were really high.

Very nice convention center. The food choices are lacking and of course anticipate jacked up convention center prices. Amenities and staff were very nice.

Wow, if you want to see every kind of boat, in a wide variety of prices this is the boat show to go to. We were trying to narrow down our choice of boat to run in the gulf off west Florida so we went on a fact finding trip to the boat show. What a great venue, the parking... More
