Beautiful location! Good lunch vendors. Within walking distance of harbor and gaslamp district. Better lighting in breakout rooms would be good, but the worst was the temperature control. If you are going to this building be sure to dress in layers. Felt like a meat cooler at times. More good than bad though.

We attended the Comic Con in July at the San Diego Convention Center. The crowds were massive, but we noticed that things were handled extremely well. Given the sheer number of people present, the air conditioning went above and beyond in keeping everyone cool during a hot July week. Restrooms were always clean and well-supplied, and staff was more than... More

One of the larger convention centers on the West Coast. Great location on the water, close to many hotels, the Gaslamp District, and Petco Field. Easy to navigate, just give yourself time.

Went to MLB Fan Fest here during All Star Weekend. Have been to numerous Fan Fest events before across the country and this was one of the best in terms of layout. Bonus we stayed in nearby hotel, so can't speak to parking but a train runs in front of it.

This place is huge but it has one of the best views you will ever see at convention. Staff was polite and helpful. Chairs were fairly comfortable. Lighting and temperature was very good. And they kept plenty of cool water available.

Visited this place in the evening and had a wonderful view of the harbour, and surrounding area, ideally situated opposite the Gaslamp Quarter with its numerous restaurants ,bars and entertainment .Very steep steps going up to the very top, but there is a nearby lift at hand. Did not attend any event, but could see from the exterior how enormous... More
