Attended a coin show recently. The parking and the size of the center were good. The only problem I would say would be that I would like to have seen the dealer tables marked.

Arlington always has something going on, a lot of those somethings are held here, its a nice facility, hosts different shows ect... its walking distance from the ballpark but that's really the only place for food in the immediate area, Scenic walking grounds surround the place.

We were at the Arlington Convention Center for our granddaughters dance competition this weekend. This venue is way past its prime. It is not being well maintained. For example, I attended an event here in October. On the outside steps there are metal anti slip grips. Some of these are loose and are a dangerous trip hazard. They were that... More

I have visited this venue for the past four years for this show. I have always been impressed with the cleanliness of the facility and the pleasant staff. I do not know if the convention center is responsible for the food in the cafe, that is the only area that needs improvement. The food was not only overpriced but also... More

My family and I were there for a fencing tournament. The building is very nicely maintained and the bathrooms are very clean. The amount of parking available is more than adequate and the cost to park is reasonable. In addition, for our event, in and out privileges were granted.

The Arlington Convention Center hosts a variety of events throughout the year. I have attended multiple functions here and have always enjoyed the facility. Parking can be a little confusing due to the proximity of the hotel lot, but other than that it is a very good venue.

It's a really great space, and kept clean and very comfortable. Everything seems to be in it's place, lots of bathrooms, and quiet places to get away from people if you need to. Nice modern feel, and easy to get to from many of the highways and nearby hotels.

Thank Bernardo F
