National organization had international congress here. Rooms well apportioned, sound systems great, good for special events surprisingly good. Great handicap parking, close to hotels and restaurants. Liked having the Ybor city trolley handy

The center itself is nice, but not much is near it or is nice. A neighboring hotel has a sports bar, down the street is good South American cafe (Columbia Cafe). Beyond this you need to go a few miles to find anything. There is a street car stop next to it, but taking this is more depressing than helpful... More

This is a fairly nice convention center with plenty of space and good service. It is very easy to get too and offers easy access to the river walk and several hotels in the area. Unfortunately on our convention half of the escalators were out of order. Over all a nice place to have a conventionn with in easy access... More

There was a "bash" night included in the conference we were attending. The food was average at best and the long lines because of poor planning made waiting in line for food for at least 20 minutes. Drinks were over priced, including bottled water. On the last day of the event the luggage check-in service was disorganized and unable to... More

Viewed concert from one of the private suites. Food was ok. View was good. Leather seats do not offer much leg room but the option to sit at the bar and tables mean you are not stuck in your seat. Staff did not do a good job of keeping food stocked. With only 28 individuals to feed - we had... More

Great location, superb personnel. I was just at this location for a conference was very pleased with the services provided. the only complaint is that we had several meals/snacks provided by the conference center and the dishwashing of the plates left too much to be desired. We went through 6 plates at one point, to find a clean one, without... More

This is a review of both the convention center and the event. I don't know who is in charge of allowing the umber of people into this event. but I attended Comicon on Sat, and this place was jammed packed to the point of it being unsafe. There were piles of folks rolling off the escalator, and piling up unto... More

This was my 3rd year going here and I love it. The vendors and artists even the other guests are all so amazing and friendly.... The price for admission was good at only 60 for 3 days....... The downside is that they are very unorganized and some of the staff for the convention are very rude and know nothing. Sat... More

The A/V issues were numerous at conference we attended. Videos did not play when called for, one failed in the middle; one speaker said, we will just tell the story and have people on the podium read the script from the failed video. Sound system was very poor; inadequate. They had small speakers set on poles which did not do... More
