Attended many events there. Cold and zero character. As a place for exhibitions nothing much can be said about it except its a big open space. Just another exhibition area. Have been both an exhibitor and an attendee.

We were recently an exhibitor there for an event. It was very expensive & the Unions have strict rules on what you can & can't do yourself there. The workers spoke & looked like Carnies with foul mouths & neck tattoos. The concessions stand was...More

We attended the travel and adventure show at this venue. The location is great, right near the Levi's Stadium and is easy to find. Plenty of parking and well marked guidelines to the venue halls.

Plenty of free parking and nice interior. I've attended several events here and it is always clean and well-maintained.

Attended first ever Alien Con. Event was terrific though convention center dropped the ball over booking their event, changing rooms on event planners and falling short on assistance. Beautiful facility though lacks staff and professional event planners.
