Attended a Bridal Extravaganza this weekend. The building is great and clean but several escalators were shut down.

Was there with the family for the quilt show. Easy to get in and out. Close to many hotels. Plenty of parking around, parking can be expensive. Close to freeways. Not to many places to eat inside. Starbucks gets really crowded. Plenty of places to sit.

I have previously been to the quilt show at Lancaster - but this show is the greatest of them all. I really enjoyed my two days there. Very good facilities, rest areas and... More

I attended the NCTM at the George R Brown Convention Center in Houston. This place is huge. With so many people attending, there was ample space to sit around everywhere. I will definitely attend next year.

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.
