Really needs to move into this century. No decent restaurants nearby. 5 miles to get to a restroom. Inhouse catering gross. Rooms stuffy, and cockeyed dividers mean you hear presentation next door. Parking overpriced.

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!!!!...More

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...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.
