This place is huge! There are plenty of eating places and it is very clean. The building is beautiful, too. Be prepared to walk, since it is so big. The only thing I can find fault with it the restrooms are not marked so well to see from a distance. If your convention is here, you will love it.

This was my 3rd year in a row there going to the Texas Band Masters conference, and once again this is a great place to be an exhibitor.

As convention centers go, this one is quite nice. It's surrounded by the Riverwalk, and you can go out to the Riverwalk from the lower level and there are balconies overlooking it on the first floor. There is plenty of seating in the corridors if you want to sit and chat, and a couple of places inside to get a coffee or sandwich.

I attended a conference here and this is probably the largest convention centre I have ever visited! I had trouble entering the building because all the doors were locked but fortunately a kind security guard let me in. Another time, the doors to the basement were locked at 7:45 am even though the organisers said they would open at 7:30 am. Another kind staff came to my rescue.
I didn't have time to explore the entire place but I did see interesting sculptures, statues and paintings.

Our fundraising professionals conference was held here for 3,400 people. It is quite a complex! Lots of space that can be configured in anyway necessary to accommodate any group. Lots of walking from session to session - got my 10,000 steps in every day! Well done.

All in all a nice facility with the worst convention food I've ever had...and that is something. At least they had a Starbucks with an edible thing or two. The restrooms were kept impecably clean and for me, that kinda makes up for the food.
