In Dallas for volleyball tournament...could not find one working water fountain to refill a water bottle. Spigots in bathroom were too low to fill water bottle there. In my hometown, public places must have working water fountains. How about installing ones to refill water bottles? Overpriced convention food...purely for convenience because would not chose to eat otherwise.

A group of 20 attended the Junior National Volleyball Tournament at Kay Bailey Convention Center in July. The weather forecast was for 100 degree weather each day. Luckily, I packed a lightweight jacket or I would have gotten frostbite inside the convention center. I also borrowed a long sleeve shirt to cover my legs. We spent 5-6 hours each day... More

We just returned from the State FFA Convention that hosts over 10,000 people and mainly high school students. The Texas FFA chooses different venue cities each year. The convention centers are our home base for an entire week from early in the morning to late at night. The Dallas crew at this venue was the nicest and accommodating group in... More

It's a convention center. What do you want? Food options are limited, gross and ridiculously overpriced--$12 for a bag of popcorn? $10 for an 8 oz smoothie? The Starbucks is the only resource that had close to normal prices. ATMs were out of cash, bathrooms constantly being serviced, never really clean, stall doors out of whack and don't lock. Artistically... More

The convention center was nearby central Dallas and very accessible. The halls contained different Olympic sports simultaneously without any feeling of congestion. It was comfortably air conditioned.

Good, clean place. Needed more food offerings inside the convention center itself. Easy to travel in and out of for drop off service.

The Dallas Convention Centrer is in a central location in Dallas. If you have an extended event here I highly suggest staying at the OMNI hotel, which is attached. It could not be more convenient, especially given the hot Dallas summers. Everyone who was at our event here, wished they were at the OMNI. It is worth every cent to... More

I have done many events at the DCC and the staff is always great to work with and helps the events vendors with everything they need for their displays.

Had a great time at the 2016 Fitness Europa Fitness expo. So much to see and do and if you are into fitness at all you will love this event.
