I was at a conference and the building is kept up well. The surrounding area is picturesque. Temperature in the building was comfortable.

Came here for an event and was impressed. Bathrooms were clean. Service by employees was good. Grounds were clean. Parking was a tad high priced. Law enforcement did a great job keeping safe and organized. Security inside was on top of any issues. Overall impressed!

The facility is a good one for meetings and conferences, but parking is the worst. The city is bad about closing streets and not letting people know. This includes cab drivers. According to two cab drivers I spoke with, they find out when they try...More

I attend an annual event at the convention center and it is a highlight of the many that I attend each year. The site is convenient with much to do and see in the close proximity to the venue. Very nice hotels close by.

Depending on the Event, I went to a Wedding show and got there an hour after it started and found parking pretty easily in the parking garage. Wasn't all that expensive either really.

The Tampa Convention Center is only a 16-20 minute drive from Tampa International Airport without traffic. During peak hours we recommend giving yourself ample time to ensure there are no delays.
