Palm Beach County Convention Center
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 28, 2012

We are here at least 3 times a year for a show-They have lunch catered (free) and it is excellent-Bathrooms are always clean-Free pick-up and drop off thru the Marriott, but if you decide to park yourself- too expensive- Walk across the street to Ruth Chris and order the crab cake

The convention center is large enough for any major affair. There is a large parking lot in the rear of building and it is walking distance to City Place.

I've attended several events at this location, from meetings and focus groups to Joe Biden's speech before the last presidential election.

It's quite spacious, conveniently located, ample parking - a great place to hold any event with many smaller meeting rooms, large rooms - 2 stories.

I would definitely recommend this convention center for any event.

The apppearance of valet parking/drop off in the front is a ruse! No such thing. You have to park in back, and the ballroom is literally about a mile from the car. If you drop off a guest in front, then park in back yourself, you have to get back on Okeechobee Boulevard (a 6-lane highway) and take two u-turns to get back to the entrance to the parking area. Then, the poor person you dropped off is stranded because they keep the front doors locked (come to find out they lock about 4 sets of those doors,, but one set is actually open -- but you have to walk around a hedge back to the street and up again to get to the unlocked doors). Whoever designed this place was oblivious to the most vital aspect of such a venue -- how guests would get in and out of the place!
THEN, when you finally get there - the food is inedible. I was served powdered scambled eggs, delivered in a round ice-cream scoop, with tasteless white gravy all over them. Yuk! The plates at my table all went back full of food - and this is the case EVERY TIME I go there. Too bad so many event planners/community leaders settle for less and continue to use this awful place...to the great disappointment of their guests.
