This light and airy convention hall is massive and can host most size meetings. It has a huge main hall but also has rooms spread over 3 floors which can get confusing at times.

It's expansion is breath taking. The art piece installed in the atrium is a must see for all art enthusiasts. The cantilever room is a trip! It's just opened last week!!

Attended PAX South 2016 at the Henry B. Gonzalez convention center. I was dreading the sardine effect from a huge crowd of people in one building, but I was pleasantly surprised at both the crowd control and the spaciousness of this facility. There are plenty of different areas and levels to keep things spread out and not cramped Many restrooms... More

This is our second year back at the HGCC and it was excellent as always. Great options for plenty of gymnastics competitions, ample seating, and vendor options. Starbucks in the front lobby! :) Clean restrooms. We'll be back next year!

We go to conventions here twice a year and they are always remodeling or adding on to the facilities. Very centrally located downtown.

The Center was OK. Some not so clean areas. But the drawback was just getting around. Markings and directions were unclear. I always had to find someone who worked there to direct me. It was like a labyrinth and not at all intuitive in its layout.

Our Congress has patronized this mid-size convention center for the past 15-20 years. It is functional, although it has a limited number of conference rooms. However, it is a perfect plcae for a society or meeting that conducts most of its business in one single conference room, with a few other activities happening in a few other meeting rooms. The...

Had a conference at Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center and it is a great venue for conferences. Parking was a bit of a challenge but San Antonio Police were very helpful to guide visitors through.
