I was here for the 2016 NBAA Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference. The convention center is beautiful and spacious and accommodates thousands of people. The grounds and water that surround the center is beautiful. Hotels and the Riverwalk connect to the center.

I spend a week at the Convention Center each January, and each year it never fails to please me with its amenities, cleanliness, and attention to detail. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the center is always spotless and fully functional.

I've been to an event at the Tampa Convention Center and was impressed by the location, organization, and how clean it all was. The people in Tampa made me re-think about Florida, I was treated with kindness even by the TSA agents :) and I mean all of them :) really nice people, everywhere I went I was very well... More

This is a typical convention center with the expected features. On several days one level's escalators were not operational. All in all we were pleased with this center.

Tampa Convention Center is located in an easy to get to waterfront location. Plenty of parking (fee). Easy to navigate and lots of places to sit. Architecture was beautiful, inside and out.

This is one of the worst convention centers i have ever been in for handicapped access. No elevator to be found, half the escalators were non-functional or only going one direction, no rental scooters. I hope that none of the managers ever need assistance, or maybe they should try it someime. Handicapped parking is almost non-existent for a place this... More

Wow! Is all I can say. This is gorgeous! Don't miss giving it a look. Not just the architecture, but the grounds and views are flat out spectacular. Somebody had the right idea when they decided Tampa needs a convention center right here!

I didn't plan the conference, so I can't speak to the staff, money, etc. That being said, it was a nice venue, quite central, easy to park, good restaurants and hotels nearby. The layout worked nicely for our conference, and I would consider it for something I planed in the future.

Thank gdarr
