Great place for a conference with multi tracks. Huge and accommodated 1600 people without utilizing an eighth of the space. Didn't even feel crowded in our section. Only complaint is that there are so many entrances that are locked, it was difficult to find the open door.

The rooms were a little small for this type of convention, this was for the Texas Apt Assoc Education Convention and a lot of the rooms just couldn't fit us all.

We were here to exhibit at a trade show and it was a nice enough space to hold the convention. We sat in on a couple of talks and the meeting spaces were pretty nice and comfortable, well lit and well wired for sound/presentations. The exhibit hall was nice and had everything we needed for our space and it was... More

Plenty of room for whatever event you may want to have. There were many bathrooms and they were all nice and clean. Staff kept order with the crowds as they arrived and made everyone follow the rules of making a single file line. Very big place though and could get easily lost if not paying attention. They had other events... More

Our family was in San Antonio for an event, and I was very impressed with the amount of technology the place uses. The construction going on wasn't in the way at all, and our event went smoothly, as expected.

What a great convention center. Easy to get to from many different hotels (and hotel chains), easy to get to by cab or bus and easy to walk to. The place is huge, but once you get the lay of the land, easy to navigate. Staff is always cleaning and there are bathroom everywhere. My only criticism is the horrible... More

I attended PAX South, and was very impressed with the variety of spaces in the building. The best of all was the multilevel amphitheater, complete with balcony seating. Very clean, and modern. It doesn't look nearly as large as it actually is from outside. I also enjoyed the hall filled with statues of important figures from Texas history.

This convention center is top-of-the-line for size, location, convenience, and class. If you have the good luck to attend a meeting here, you will come away thinking that San Antonio is quite a city and treat conventioneers very well.

Attended a annual golf show - massive exhibition hall - very modern and well done. Ideal location but parking not cheap - take a taxi or walk! It's easy to get in and out and the catering was even good - you know that's not always the case in exhibition halls! Lots of bathrooms and staff on duty to help... More
