“Very difficult to get into center. Staff not at all helpful”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We used this place because I was here for a convention. Everyone was quick to tell you you can't come in this entrance or park here but no one would tell us where to go. This is a huge national conference and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone again

“This is a no-hassle venue”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We attended the home show there this weekend. Be prepared to have an I. D. for everyone in the car. A driver's license will do. the convention center and parking are on the site of Port Everglades and cruise ship security applies. You do have to pay to park unless the event staff will validate your tickets. Parking is quick and easy and there are elevators and stairs to take you to the skywalk access on level 2 of the garage. the Skywalk is airconditioned and goes directly to the convention hall. I would much rather attend and event here than other halls in South Florida that have parking and access restrictions you have to deal with. It takes no time to park and get into the hall so most of your time can be spent enjoying the event. This center sets a standard that few others can match.

“Convention Center”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Convenient to hotels and restaurants. Plan to do a lot of walking. It can also be difficult to get a cab.

“Perfect Place for a Convention!!!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is the perfect site for a convention. There are many hotels to stay at that you can just walk to the convention center. There was a guard there in the morning to check ID's so you felt safe early morning or late at night. It is along a waterway, so you can take a water taxi across the street. The convention center is on the main floor and the 2nd floor has many rooms that were set up for training classes and lectures.
