“A great place for a trade show”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We all know, convention centers are all exactly the same from Seattle to Orlando. The thing that makes this one great is that, boring and flat as Texas is, San Antonio is a super pleasant oasis. San Antonio's charm helps make a bland experience like a convention just that much more fun.

“Expansive_DvB”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Depsite the vast area and square footage avaliable to exhibitors, the convention center is well-designed and intuitively laid out. There are also some unique additions, such as sculptures of Texas heroes. The paintings and other art make this a great place to choose over generic centers of comparable space. I have attended several large events and never had a problem.

“Great facility...!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Located in great downtown San Antonio close to shopping, multiple eating options and best of all the Riverwalk and all it has to offer. Convenient event parking at the Hilton special event parking covered garage area for $10 for 10 hours, more than reasonable and convenient.
