We attended a gymnastics meet for a weekend that was well organized and the convention center is easy to access and get around. There were also multiple conventions and a volley ball tournament going on at the same time. Huge facility.

This theater within the convention center is HUGE! I had seats in the 1st balcony, row A (partially obstructed by the railing). My daughters and I saw the Disney Live! Three Wishes show which was about 90 min long with a 15 min intermission. Nice, short, simplified versions of Snow White, Cinderella, and Belle stories with music and dancing. It was very nice for our first experience at this theater.

I always like to find the $3-$5 parking off site and walk a few blocks, since the weather is always nice here, and you can come out of the convention center onto the Riverwalk and then go through Hemisfair Park to get back to your car. There's also a snack trolley at the Park which we always enjoy, instead of the overpriced concessions at the shows.

It was a nice convention center, as convention centers go, but to get a bottle of water during the convention you had to talk all over, but that might've been how our convention wanted it set up.
Food was ok at lunch but had some issues with entree outages but other then that it was fine.

I was here for a psychiatric nurse conference October 9-12. The conference center is large with plenty of space to hold multiple conferences at once. It is in the center of town and a short walk to hotels and attractions.
