This year I visited LA Travel & Adventure Show at the Long Beach Convention Center for the first time . I liked the set up and the ease of navigating the center and overall I think I liked this show better here than at the bigger brother--LA Convention Center. Very clean and nice facility is located right next to The Pike. There are plenty of awesome restaurants and the parking was relatively easy since we came early. We had a nice time afterwards exploring the area.

This is my second year of participating in the LA Travel & Adventure Show at the Long Beach Convention Center. I like it considerably better than the LA Convention Center, but it's not always easy for exhibitors, especially with getting our booth materials out. The physical layout and limited elevators make for a somewhat frustrating experience trying to get materials to our vehicles, as well as long waits for elevator service.
The food concessions at the convention center are ludicrous and ridiculously expensive at best, and blatantly incompetent at their worst (watching them try to just cut and serve a slice of pizza was like watching the Three Stooges in action). If you are going to an event at the convention center, avoid the concessions at all cost and go to one of the actual restaurants available within one block of the center.
The bathrooms were kept clean, though one did have to wonder what it took to get soap to actually be produced from the automatic soap dispensers. People were doing the sink dance going from one sink to the next, just trying to get some microscopic dollop of liquid soap to wash their hands (in the midst of flu season).
Still, we always get a great crowd at this convention center, and the staff seems professional and helpful, so we'll keep coming back.

The American Astronomical Society has apparently settled on this convention center as one of its "standard" places to hold its annual meeting. Of the convention centers that are used for this convention, I like this one the most. Well organized room layout, nice main convention hall, and centrally located.

While attending a 4-day conference in Long Beach we were very pleased with this facility. It was easy to access from our hotel and the meeting rooms were very comfortable. We appreciated the consistently good seating and temperature of the conference rooms and the restrooms were impeccably clean. Must mention that the staff was really great. Our final evening of the conference was a very large dinner that the banquet staff handled so beautifully they deserve a very special thank you!!!
