We had a blast attending Fan Fest here. It was so clean in downtown Phoenix. No trash anywhere on the sidewalks or street. Police were visible. The event was extremely well organized and staff very helpful. Well done!

This event was an absolute blast for the kids. We spent 3 hours at the convention center playing all the games. The security staff was very helpful and expedited the screening process. Great place to host that event.

Is the convention center free to tour? I & my husband are celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary, staying in the hotel Palomar for the weekend. Low on income due to my husband on unemployment ( 1sthe time ever in over 35years.) We never ever visited the convection center and would love to today?

It shouldn't be a problem to enter the convention center, but if there is a conference going on, then certain areas/ballrooms may have access limited to conference attendees.
