Great place, with a lot of space to walk around and sit, bathrooms always clean and there's wifi on some spots.

Attended a conference - venue was generally acceptable except for some acoustic issues. Currently construction is ongoing which may result in some inconvenience.

The George R. Brown Convention Center is often the site for huge events that come to Houston, so here quite often. Comic Conventions love using this place. Also Passion 2015 used this space for their small group breakouts, which was great as it is right next to the Toyota Center!

Having attended several conventions over the last couple of years, I have to say that this was one of the most pleasant venues so far. The "ship" motif is entertaining, but moreover it's comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, AND it's all LEED (environmentally) certified! Aside from a couple of difficulties with the sound systems, the rooms were well set up and... More

When we went the convention center was undergoing construction. Just a little hectic around the convention center.

Very large place. Arrive early so you can park in the parking garage for $12 and not $25. Food vendors were really expensive, but overall really nice.

I would come here for certain events. Big and clean facility. Parking can be a hassle, though. I usually park in the Hilton Hotel parking garage. I had a bad experience parking in one of the remote parking lots and almost got mugged!

The George R. Brown Convention Center is spacious, clean, easily connected to nearby hotels and easy to get to from Houston Hobby Airport. The facility was immaculate and spotless and the staff was very friendly and helpful. That, the comment made by another reviewer is valid. The numbering system is confusing and it is not always clear where to go... More

This is a fine convention center. Apparently the designers were going for the feel of a ship, but all I got from it was hockey rink. There are multiple large exhibition halls that are flexible for many types of events. The built-in signage is kind of confusing, but truthfully, it's on your event's planner to put up signs getting you... More

This was a great location for this conference. The conference was one of the most accessible I have attended with lots of space, power for charging, and it has a very modern, eye appealing design.
