I attended a three day conference here. The place is expansive to say the least. It's situated along the river walk and the tower of the Americas is right outside. Also within easy walking distance to the mall and multiple hotels. Only drawback, the wifi is extraordinarily slow.

A convention center is what it is, a place for meetings. But HBGCC is well designed and incorporates a bit of the Riverwalk and wonderful plantings to make it unusually user-friendly.

A very nice facility. Parking is expensive though. A reasonable walk from most downtown attractions.

Very attentive staff members. It was very clean and updated. Even its bathrooms were kept clean while we were there. Very nice staff. Definitely consider this place for any events in this area.

We attended a gymnastics meet for a weekend that was well organized and the convention center is easy to access and get around. There were also multiple conventions and a volley ball tournament going on at the same time. Huge facility.

This theater within the convention center is HUGE! I had seats in the 1st balcony, row A (partially obstructed by the railing). My daughters and I saw the Disney Live! Three Wishes show which was about 90 min long with a 15 min intermission. Nice, short, simplified versions of Snow White, Cinderella, and Belle stories with music and dancing. It... More

It was a nice convention center, as convention centers go, but to get a bottle of water during the convention you had to talk all over, but that might've been how our convention wanted it set up. Food was ok at lunch but had some issues with entree outages but other then that it was fine.

I was here for a psychiatric nurse conference October 9-12. The conference center is large with plenty of space to hold multiple conferences at once. It is in the center of town and a short walk to hotels and attractions.

Attended a business convention here which was total of 5 days. Nice clean location and everything was easy to find and close to public parking and right across mall and Marriott.
