I love the convenience and location of this convention center. I always stay at the adjoining Hilton Americas while visiting the Quilt Market and it is easy to get to many wonderful venues, restaurants and shopping without needing a car.

Great location for downtown conventions in the heart of the city. We enjoyed the Big Brew Fest and the International Quilt Festival. Discovery Green just outside the doors is a perfect place for concerts, outdoor festivals and just lovely walks.

Great hosts and perfect venue for the USA Jr. National Volleyball Championships. Be sure to check out the gift shop on the second floor. Mary was great ambassador for the shop, the Ctr and Houston.

Lots of space in this convention center. Can definitely hold more than 1 event at once. Have been here for several events. Get ready to walk. Parking can be an issue.
