“Excellent meeting space”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Excellent place to attend meetings. Downtown streets under construction, so locating parking can be a challenge.

“A huge place ideally sited”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Was there for a conference and the rooms had adequate facilities for the various presentations. Food options are limited to the cold sandwiches and salads, and the walkways in the convention centre are cold. It was 7 degrees celsius with the wind blowing when I was there. It was common to see conference participants getting some warmth by sitting at the benches outside in the sun. It was nice to have comfortable seating places at the corridors to catch a breather or to plan the next presentation.

“National conference”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The National Science Teacher conference was help here at the convention center. This is one of the best places to have e conference. The convention center was very nice and easy to navigate. The near by hotels offered additional meeting rooms needs for the conference (conference used convention center and 4 other hotels meeting rooms). It was easy to get from one place to another in a short time. I have been to this conference in a different city and had a terrible time moving between many hotels that were very spread out. This convention center made the conference much more enjoyable. There are plenty of hotels in the area to accommodate travelers. The Riverwalk provided eating options and things to do. I hope the conference is help here again in the future.

“Huge, Excellent Facility”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Just attended a convention here, and it was great! 1.3 million square feet of well-airconditioned space, well maintained. Very convenient to downtown, and right on River Walk. It's also within walking distance to the Alamodome and several upscale downtown hotels.
