I had an opportunity to spend a week attending a convention there. I spent most of my time in section D, which appears to have been updated while the next door Omni came online. I did attend one formal catered luncheon in the facility, the food and service was very good. Like any convention facility, there pricing model is designed... More

Even though the place is huge, it was extremely clean and smelled good, the staff was amazing with making sure we got to the right place, they knew how everything was set-up for our conference, and they were very nice. We will see you next year!

Was at the convention center for a show for 2 days. It's big. The parking lot underneath is nice so you can get your car out of the sun. They were charging $15 which is on par with other places I visit. The food inside was lacking. They have a few different types but they are all spread out and... More

The convention center for 4 days each year hosts the wonderful and huge Dallas Safari Club convention and outdoor show. The site works great for such event with a grand hotel connected by walkways a train station nearby buses and lots of parking . A really great place

The adjacent OMNI is awesome, nice meeting rooms, good coffee shop and quiet. The convention center is loud, the meeting rooms were old and depressing; wifi (or the network capacity) was almost non-existent. The bathrooms were not the cleanest and the food was appallingly bad. It's only apparent advantage is that it is enormous and in Dallas.

This place is HUGE! I felt like a country bumpkin trying to figure my way around it. Put your walking shoes on because it's a lot of walking from here to there, EVEN TO THE BATHROOMS...which makes no sense to me in a convention center. For the size of a small neighborhood (lol), there were 3 women's restrooms with 6-8... More

Loved this convention center. Very large exhibitor floor and celebrity autographing area. Great job on layout and space. DART runs right next door which is great. Plenty of places to eat surrounding the area. Lots of bathrooms which is a must for 60,000 people descending upon the convention center, never had to wait in line (women's bathroom, that is unheard... More

We spent the weekend at the convention center for a large volleyball tournament. I was disappointed in the restroom facilities. They did not smell clean and often had no toilet paper. I would think the center would have adequately staffed for a group as large as the Lone Star Qualifier tournament. Also, when your entire facility is filled with athletes,... More

Attended Truck-show and Trade convention Mid America Truck show it had spacious accommodations with a friendly staff. The parking and getting around can be confusing due to lack of information signs. Overall it was a great place to hold business meetings and see industry new products. The food was over priced and not as appealing as you would hope.

The Dallas Convention Center is a very large venue and can accommodate many things going on at the same time. I attend the Mary Kay convention annually and I know the center can accommodate thousands of people at one time. It is adequately divided into meeting halls and classrooms, accommodates large crowds in the arena and an "expo" in another... More
