Closes too early.

Large area for vendors and a good size staff to help you navigate the booths. Limited options for snacks and meals. IT staff on top of problems before they materialzie.

We were here for a travel convention and had some time before doors open. Walked around the west side and were surprised with a beautiful view of the bay and Coronado. Near the old town area with lots of great restaurants and shops. No wonder convention are so popular here.

Been to Comic-Con here each of the last 4 years, about to make it 5. Best convention center, and the greatest experience I've ever had. No longer must you be a geek to attend! Convention center is packed full, could stand to be bigger, but handles the volume well.

Coming to the beautiful city of San Diego is always a pleasure! Especially when attending shows at the convention Centre. This place is first class in every way possible. Beautiful architecture and very well laid out . It is close to all sorts of wonderful places, stores and restaurants to visit.

The location is excellent, especially for winter conventions.. The views are great and there are plenty of patios to access the bay view and some sun when you a get a break.. There is a nice receptions area called the Sails Pavillion and they served a nice cocktail reception. Staying at adjacent hotels is great and an easy walk over.

Just had a large veterinary conference here the first of December and the facility is very nice. You will log some steps no matter where you are.

Psych Congress 2015 was my third time covering a medical meeting in the San Diego CC. I've been to many of the popular venues on "the circuit" for big meetings and small, and San Diego is easily my favorite. The staff are great. The hall can adjust the wifi from top notch to station based, depending on what the meeting... More

I recently attended a conference there. It was fairly simple to navigate. The harbor views were a plus. It's a shame our presenters kept the curtains closed all session long.

It is so large that there was 3 conventions/ conferences going on at the same time. I've been there for about 7 conferences over the past 12 years and have always enjoyed it.
