I have been to several conventions at the HBG in SA. They do a good job and the location of the convention center is very convenient to hotels, restaurants and nightlife.

Was there for the oil and gas show, and was very pleased with the convenience of the convention center to all the restaurants and other things to do in San Antonio. They have some construction going on at one side, but it will probably make it even nicer or larger once it is finished.

Very organized, helpful staff and such a beautiful and immense venue. Convention literally on the River Walk in heart of iconic downtown San Antonio, what more do you need.

Have attended several conferences here. The exhibit space is not huge and sometimes the meeting rooms are a bit of a walk away, but still this is a good place. Convenient hotels and restaurants, and access to the Riverwalk help. On the upper floor there is a space with statues of famous people from the San Antonio area throughout Texas... More

I attend and exhibit in lots of conventions in many cities, (small, medium and large sized), and I was really disappointed when I attended a show at my own convention center and was really shocked by how disorganized and under-staffed that it was. Even Des Moines and Savannah did a better job. Just saying...

This is a great venue to have a convention. I have been to many events there and it is always very nice. The staff that works there is very friendly and helpful. The place is always clean.

We attended San Antonio's largest convention there and was thoroughly impressed with the center. It is very nicely designed and had more than enough space to accommodate the ton of events that were occurring simultaneously. Well done San Antonio!

This place is huge and I had the fortunate occasion to have two events/meetings at the same location on the same day. I was able to attend both. Parking is a little hectic but the venue is convenient.
