Went for an Herbalife conference

I was with 13,000+ of my closest friends at a conference here. It was a beautiful arena, great signage, awesome location, but the bathrooms were few and far between. The lines... read more

I work in the tradeshow industry and love working at the LBCC. There is always something happening and there's new shopping right across the street and tons of restaurants to chose from. We love Islands and a little bit further are restaurants right on the marina and shoreline village.

Came for an event. There is a small parking garage and large parking lot which both connect. The inside had a restaurant a a few small concessions. The main area was nice because of the 360 seating. No matter where you say you are able to have a good view. We couldn't believe the few bathrooms that were available. Super... More

YMCA gymnastics nationals competition held in area. For spectators the seating is the worst. What a crap-hole. Bathrooms were not supplied well with paper product & the couch/benches in the women's rooms are disgusting. Concessions employees were ridiculously slow. Don't think I can blame anything else on the convention center. I'm sure someone else was to blame for the food... More

The Long Beach Convention Center is very large, so be prepared for lots of walking. The bathrooms are a bit hidden, too. The staff was friendly.

Beautiful convention center right next to our hotel. There is a man made water pond that displays water shows. Building in itself is also nice to look at.

I do not know the age of the center but it looks like it is dated. You are able to get to the different rooms easily and there is a deli/coffee shop inside. It is close to the Hyatt and the waterfront and shops so if you have a break, it is a short walk to restaurants and attractions.

There are lots of lights, trees, various colors, and with a moonlit night, the color extends into the sky. Add some color from other local buildings and across the water, including the bridge, and this is a beautiful place for an evening walk.

We just had a booth as an exhibitor at the Long Beach Scuba Show. We've done this show many times, and this year was probably the best yet - lots of enthusiastic divers looking for a destination. The convention center is very user-friendly, with one exception. Another group using a different hall had somehow gotten exclusive use of the parking... More

Located right near the waterfront, with lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance and with plenty of parking, this convention center is very user friendly. The inside is nice, very light and airy and easy to get around.
