The lovely facilities are adjacent to Old Town Pasadena as well as a modern shopping mall just across the street. Plenty of hotels, restaurants and bars in the immediate areas, the entire district is very walkable for SoCal. A capstone banquet held al fresco in the plaza fronting the center was the perfect way to end the congress. It was... More

This place is located across from the so-so Pasadena Mall. I went there to see my Son Willie be sworn into the California Bar. (Yes I am bragging about my boy) Anyway in the Old day they use to hold operas there. Now its mostly used for ceremonies. None the less the decor and surrounding are well worth the time... More

I was in the convention center to attend the National Celiac Disease Foundation Conference and Gluten-free Expo. The convention center is a great facility: large meeting spaces with good audio/visual capabilities, smooth food service delivery and cleanup, clean safe environment. Would recommend this location for all types of meetings.

Events held at the Convention are truly fun! Parking is across the street. Don't forget to eat and shop across from the convention!

This center consists of 3 large buildings - an expo hall/ballroom, an older civic auditorium, and another building with many meeting rooms. The facility was nice and clean, overall pretty comfortable.

Attend here at least once a year for lectures and award nights. Park in the back (not at the mall parking) for cheaper rates.

We were here for the Cabinets & Closets Expo. Once we got the lay of the land, we found this campus to be very nice. I especially liked the conference building, which I thought was laid out very nice, and easy to jump from room to room if you wanted to switch sessions. As an added bonus, America's Got Talent...

I've been there for all kinds of performances and haven't been disappointed. Parking is easy across the street in the underground parking structure. Acoustics are pretty good for a convention center. Not Music Center quality, but pretty good.

We were here for the 2016 ACDA Honor Choirs performance and it was beautiful. The sound is great and it seats a large amount of people.
