This is a very nice convention center with lots of natural light. Doesn't have the cavern experience that so many convention centers have. And it's right in the heart of downtown and the Riverwalk.

Huge convention center in the heart of San Antonio. Modern looks with state-of-the-start conference halls. Can't wait to assist future Cyber Conventions on its premises.

We held our national convention here. A couple of thousand attendees, no problem. The staff members were helpful and courteous. Not a hitch in the 3-day conference.

Was there for a convention with the motor coach industry. The center itself is well laid out and within distance of many fine hotels and restaurants. The offerings for food were mostly quick order but still good choices.

Don't know for sure but suspect they have shows that have animals in them at times; didn't see any dogs with anyone and no signs posted. Probably depends on the function.
