We went to a gun show here. It was easy to access and very clean. The construction going on outside was a bit of a mess but we navigated through it easily. I was impressed with how clean the place was. Very well organized venue.

This place is huge and seems like roads around it are always under construction. Parking is relatively easy and good hotels are available close by or connected. If you are a exhibitor and want to bring in your own gear, be prepared to deal with carrying it long distance. Getting to shipping docks is not easy.

this venue can pretty much host anything you can think of, royal wedding, celebrity basket ball game, car show, donation drives and conventions of any size

Went with my 10 year old son who loves legos. This was his first convention and he loved it. Good exhibits -this place is huge; lot of walking. Went to Discovery Green Park across the street after. Took UBER both ways. All in all a great experience and the boy was totally entertained and enjoyed everything.

It is a huge facility on the east side of downtown Houston and I go there at least once a year. Houston marathon holds the expo the day before the run in GRB. They also let us stay warm inside until the race starts and enjoy the after race party there as well.

The convention center is in a beautiful location downtown. Using google maps you can get to the convention center then there is parking directly across the street. The venue is very nice and houses many different events.

What can I say It's a Convention Center go for your event it's clean, parking is expensive but close. There are several hotels in the area if you need one. Food is expensive but what do you expect It's a Convention Center don't go there to eat!

I was at the convention center to give a presentation at a conference. The sound and IT system employees were very good and conscientious about doing their jobs. They took great care to make sure that we were accommodated with our presentation needs. The only minimal complaint that I have is that there were not a lot of food options... More

We were there for the Walk with Dinosaur Exhibition. It is a functional location at best that ticks most boxes but nothing stands out
