This place was good for our convention. It seats about 11,000 people and the stage area is easy to see from the seats. The video screens for the stage were easy to watch

The Metroplex Challenge gymnastics invitational meet moved from downtown Dallas to here a few years ago, and it's easy to see why. This facility is open, spacious, and always clean. It's the perfect venue for a big gymnastics meet.

I was an exhibitor at a large convention here. Unlike McCormick Place in Chicago, the staff was very professional, helpful, and courteous. Display floor personnel did a fantastic job delivering our equipment and coordinating the process. Nothing but good things to say about these Guys!!!! And Gals too!!!!!

The convention center is dated but nice enough and very large. The parking is best behind the facility in the city lot which is very reasonable. The staff, during our event, was very kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. There is a lot to do downtown so go explore and have fun. The area is clean and appears to be rather safe... More

Everything was top notch. The trash was always empty and bathrooms stocked. The building design was so unique that every space was different. Many doors to enter. Many hotels located around it. Plus you have a beautiful Water Gardens area too.

The Convention Center has a large area for exhibitors, many ballrooms and smaller rooms used for breakout sessions. It is within walking distance of many hotels, restaurants, Sundance Square. There are parking garages and open lots surrounding the Convention Center. Very good place for attending or hosting conferences.

I can't begin to count the number of times I've been here for events. For concerts, Oktoberfest, shows, etc... The structure may have aged, but the venue is timeless. The location downtown is ideal. The only problem is the parking and how far you may end up walking if you have to park too far away.
