An easily navigable property with large ballrooms on the ground floor (decent acoustics) and large convention space on the upper levels. Location along the waterway and adjacent to the Tampa RiverWalk. Great views of the water from the one end of the building. Parking is sufficient and the entrance areas are nice for those patrons walking in from the surrounding hotels.

Was here for the Florida Bar Exam. A comfortable, clean and modern facility that served its function extremely well. The convention center workers were friendly and helpful.
Parking is nearby in the garage. While easy to get to, the payment method is a tad complicated.

It cost fees for tournament $18.00 per person, $20.00 to park if you can find a place $3.00 for 1 bottle of water and lucky for me I didn't have to stay the night. So my point is when the kids are on there break between game the choices to eat are limited and cost way to much and the taste is another story. The kids are not allowed to eat a sandwich from home on the property or they are ask to leave and we are told the event will be find $25.000 .this is ridiculous. Maybe we should have all our tournaments in Orlando until Tampa get more choices to eat and fair prices
and stop picking on 13 year old girls.

Wow! Is all I can say. This is gorgeous! Don't miss giving it a look. Not just the architecture, but the grounds and views are flat out spectacular. Somebody had the right idea when they decided Tampa needs a convention center right here!

My husband and I attended the 2013 Comic Con and while we enjoyed the convention center the food that was provided by the convention center was HORRIBLE! My main problem was with the gentleman who was doling out condiments for the burgers. He was so busy telling customers that he works for tips that he poured sun dried tomatoes all over my husbands wings instead of his burger. Oh by the way for two burgers, 6 wings, and two waters our meal came to a grand total of $38. I think it's time to get a new catering company!

Don't need a car to go to the Tampa Convention Center with many hotels nearby. Stop and take a walk along the river front. Great area.

The Tampa Convention Center was clean, bright, fresh, new and really a perfect choice for the convention. On the water, near local dining and plenty of parking is a good start. An Uber ride away from the airport and hotels rounds this out to be a great choice for any convention. Only negative side is that there is construction currently outside. The other recommendation is that they should seet up a spot for share ride pickup and mark it well. Uber and Lyft drivers don;t know where to pick up and drop riders. Other than that, great!

Water jugs always empty only one coffee shop open no grab n go food options during lunch breaks bathrooms very spread out some under construction. Snacks for our convention were not near enough for the group size very disappointed over all. Orlando Atlanta and Chicago are way better!
