My daughter and I attended our first Walker Stalker / Heros and Villans Con this weekend. The venue was packed both Saturday and Sunday which apparently event promoters were ill prepared for. One of the negatives was that the concessions could not keep up with...More

I attended a very large convention here and some of my negative experiences were due to the event company, not the convention center itself. However I will say that there were not enough concession stands open for the 18,000+ person convention. Only 1 or 2...More

My husband and I went here. The place was packed. They should have a better system for reentry. Every time we stepped outside to smoke we had to go through the security line each time. 😠

Nice large venue within a very close distance to O’Hare, but the interior lacks the feeling of a more modern facility. Other than some dated fixtures, overall a nice venue.

This place is huge, so its hard to write a solid review, but I'll give it a go. I typically go here for Wizard World Comic Con. Its a great setup for this, because of the multiple hall rooms that they can divide and it...More

This center needs an upgrade and people movers. Through thier walkways it must be a long mile to get where you need to be. A new ground level entrance would be great. They share an entrance with the rest., but, it's not open all the...More

We had a one day conference here and were very pleased with the accommodations. Everyone was polite. It was easy to cross the street from the hotel. Nothing negative to say.

Great show that was well organized. The largest problem with this facility is parking, it's pricey and worse inconvenient.

I think there is a Hilton connected to the convention center. I am sure there are a lot of hotels nearby because O'Hare field is right there. I am local so I really never paid attention to hotels.
