Went here for the ISLH 2017 (a medical conference) in early May this year. This conference/business venue has huge halls, and is very accessible with escalators, abundant drinking water, lovely large clean toilets, and a semi-open air terrace for fresh air too.

The convention center is huge. It is perfect for large meetings. There are jumbo screens in the meeting rooms so everyone can see the stage. The sound and video quality were excellent. The box lunch was pretty good and distributed efficiently to thousands of people....More
