Yes, the convention centre is huge! But the IBS had shuttles from the parking lots to whatever building you wanted to go to so was extremely well thought out. Only complaint would be the food vendors. So overpriced! Mid day, exhausted and looking for a sandwich shouldn't cost $23.00 US for 2 people.

The Convention Center is a beautiful building and perfect for a multi-function event. That said, the layout is very confusing, and I found myself lost on many occasions. The trade show I attended spanned the West and South buildings, and the trek using the pedestrian bridge (once I finally found it!) from one building to the other was pleasant, if... More

One of the biggest convention centers In the country. Some shows here like the IBM are so big requiring Visit to both North, South and West wings. The distant between the South wing and the West one is very long and might require 10/12 minutes walk at relatively High speed. Getting into the parking lot in the morning might take... More

The facility is very nice except for the fact that everything is too spread out and would greatly benefit from more signage that tells visitors where things are. It is extremely frustrating when the "help" people do not speak english and do not know where anything is and even more frustrating when they staff is rude and aggressive to visitors... More

The International Builders Show was recently held here, and from what I understand it is one of the two largest convention spaces in the country. But it was well organized with plenty of staff and shuttle buses running in every direction to get convention goers around. I was impressed. But remember, it is huge, and you will walk a lot...

This place is massive, with two main facilities across the street from each other. If you attend a large conference here, you must be prepared to walk great distances, I am talking miles. The facilities and staff are top notch. I have been attending the International Builders Show for about 15 years, whenever it was in Orlando. It has always... More

We participated as a vendor in an annual print show. The convention center is very nice and they offered a variety of food which was ok. Only taxis are allowed to pick up at the airports.... Ubers are not allowed in the airport. All in all, there are enough taxis in the area so we didn't have to wait long.

It is an enormous complex! They had 3 different conventions when we were there and ours had 6000 attendees. While it is well run, I found the facilities too big. You have to walk forever to go from one point to another (I bought some flat shoes to walk from the hotel in my bag). It feels too big to... More

I spent several conference days here back in June. It was my first visit to this convention center, and I didn't realize it was so big! I wish I'd planned my hotel location a bit better to be more centrally located to the convention area where I'd be attending meetings the most. That sort of thing can be hard to... More

Orlando is an awesome place for any convention. This convention center is huge and had everything needed for our meeting.
