“HALF BAKED”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

A badly designed building squeezed into a hard to access area with few nearby hotel rooms or restaurants and harder than need to be access from the airport if one has a chance not to go they should avoid.

“What can you say”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

What can one say, it's a convention center. I've only been there for the Home Show's, it's average and serves its purpose. Food is NOT good, as expected from such places. Another commentor mentioned having to go thru the port to get to it, I didn't. I entered from 17th St. Causeway and just parked? The street it's on does have a few decent restaurants though, I'd recommend maybe Bimini Boatyard (has outside dining on the water), Girogio's Italian (low key, low ambience but good food), Bistro Mezzuluna and some tucked back on the south side in the Publix shopping center.

“An awkward entrance.”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Other people commented on how strange it is that you access the convention centre though the same entrance as Port Everglades. No big deal once you realise that you need to do this. Was like an initiative test (we failed it) to find your way in to the centre from the parking as the signs are seemingly non-existent. There is a nice covered internal bridge between the two but as a first time visitor there is no way of knowing this. Weird that the doorway is not signed..... We went downstairs in to the roadway and in a back entrance but eventually found our way inside. Once there everything fine apart from the food outlet where the staff ambled aimlessly and with absolutely no enthusiasm and showed a total lack of communication skills. But the food was edible and hot.

“A very nice convention center”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Me and my wife went here for an IECSC convention. It has a very large area for trade shows and lots of rooms for meetings and classes. The lobby of the convention center has a glass facade which allows a lot of natural light in which creates a very nice atmosphere. The parking can be a little expensive depending how long you are there. The parking garage for the convention center is shared by the cruise terminal. You have to go through the Port Authority guards to get to the convention center, even if you walk there. These guards can be a little rude but they are not part of the convention center staff who were very helpful.
