Great venue for expositions. Try to make the Grand Prix through the streets around the convention center in April.

Beautiful, newish, clean and impressive. Gorgeous setting on the water surrounded by restaurants. This is a renovation gone good.

An exhibition center that has it all. The food outlets during the Scuba Show were good and close by. Just miss to have free wifi in the exhibition hall which you get at many other exhibition halls.

While attending a convention, we felt both the attendees as well as the vendors suffered for having chosen this venue. This conference was supposed to start at 10am but attendees were forced to enter single file in line. Some didn't get I used till 11am. I'm not sure if it was the convention sponsors idea or the center but the... More

Nice place to rest and eat when events are happening. We go there for the motorcycle show every year. Outside you can enjoy outdoor events and enjoy the night air and surroundings.

Decor was that of a boutique hotel/ Ritz combined! Tons of light, cool furniture, and great service.

The LB Convention center is located in one of the most picturesque locations in Los Angeles area. Walk to shops, theaters, marina, water front, the Aquarium of the Pacific etc. When you come for a convention, take an extra few days and relax before or after the convention, atleast 1 day. It will be worth it.

The convention center staff was very pleasant and friendly. They always seemed to want to assist in anyway possible. That being said, the building engineer needs to check on his or her guest a lot more. On the first day of our conference rooms were far to hot and on the second day the rooms felt like a sauna. The... More

I was here for a conference and was able to experience most rooms in the venue. The classrooms were excellent with the right technology support required. The ball rooms and exhibitor halls were flexible and attractive during speaking events and banquets. I would recommend this venue for larger events. I was also impressed with how well branded the conference was,... More
