Always fun to go to the auto show in the Tampa convention center. Small enough to be easy to do in an hour or so. Big enough to enjoy a nice time looking at various models of autos. Easy parking and easy to get in and out of the downtown Tampa area. Fun for all auto fans and all ages.... More

This place is a good venue for the many events held there throughout each year. Nothing overly special and few amenities beyond offered by exhibiting events.

Awesome experience, friendly people and good location. Hate paying the outrageous prices for hot dog and a coke but honestly it wasn't as bad as others I've been in.

My husband had a conference here, it was kept up very well. The staff was very helpful. We ordered food at the entrance, we had cuban nachos.. which we thought were very tasty.

It is a convention center with a constant turnover of shows from trade shows to dog shows and is located in Channelside area.

I spent three days here working a convention. If I say anything I want yo say the restrooms were immaculate. Wish there were more bottled water stations available.

Right downtown and the host to a wide variety of functions! Plenty of parking! There are numerous hotels within walking distance.

A good convention center for a mid-sized city. It is well laid out and room numbers make sense to location. The geographical area itself is a bit difficult to access easily. There are many one way streets and odd ways of managing traffic. There is also a good bit of construction nearby.

Very large, several parking garages very close for easy parking. Don't be suckered into paying $30 for parking in nearby lots. The garages are only $10 for all day. Nice inside, very helpful workers
