ICSC Texas Idea Exchange Conference

Great facility. Be prepared to walk because it is large. Tunnel connects Center to hotel. DART stop nearby.

Visited during the CAMX expo, the DCC is located downtown with direct access to the OMNI hotel. I recommend you stay at the OMNI for the convenience. The Convention center has plenty of parking. They charged me $15 dollars to park all day.

First trip to Dallas and the convention centre for the Mecum Worldwide Auction. We were treated like royalty during our three day visit to the centre. All facilities are immaculate. You cannot really fathom how big this place is and boy do they know how to put on a show.

This was my first time exhibiting at the Dallas convention center and it will be my last. Prepared for typical convention style food, staff etc. I was stunned to discover even worse food at the concessions and incredibly limited services for exhibitors. We were not permitted to bring in coolers with drinks or food despite the fact that one of... More

The center is so big and adventurous. It was plenty to do and tons of rooms to walk around as well as partake in all the areas of the center. It had food court and so much more to offer. I truly enjoyed every bit of this area. It can definitely host large conferences and events.

First, it's big! Everything is a walk. It has good facilities for snacks and coffee. There is free wifi in some areas. However there wasn't a lot in the way of substantial food places and the toilets were not the most pleasent.
