I was pleased with the openness of this building. We were there for a convention and it seemed that the facility was more than up to the chalenge

I would never recommend having any kind of event here. I was not impressed. It was difficult to get to with all the construction and was not easily accessible for large conferences. They seemed to be rushing around trying to make sure everything was in order but overall I was not impressed.

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
