Here for a large convention (about 40,000). In moving around, it felt crowded for the number of people. Elevators running the wrong direction, etc.

This is a nice conference area but when there are 40,000 people it is difficult to get in and out of. Felt trapped a lot as not many stair areas and escalators are small. I'm sure it would be perfect for any smaller groups.
