I attended a meeting at this facility. It's huge. The meeting facilities are good and it's in a great location adjacent to many hotels and restaurants. I made the mistake of have a quick lunch in the exhibit hall. The food was terrible and overpriced. It may have been the worst cheeseburger I've ever had......especially for $13. They need to do better.

As usual it’s the time of the year where people with similar interests come together to celebrate Jack Kirby, Stan Lee and all those other men and women involved in comics

First of all this place is big!! I was at a nationwide convention and we didnt even take up half of it. In my opinion it is hard to rate a conv ctr. There were plenty of restrooms, the location was right across the street from the gaslamp dist. and there were some good views Of San Diego bay from the back side. There are several hotels around it. The staff i did talk to were all friendly and helpfull

It ranked up there with Orlando, Chicago and Anaheim Convention centres for me, however, we were at a smallish event at the same time as another big show was on so it was overwhelmed. But this area is very nice with lots to do after the show is over.

We were here for Comic-Con. It is very well run and organized. The facility has clean restrooms and the food is not bad! There's tons of space!

In 2022 - another year with the C-19 pandemic - traveled once more to San Diego to attend APEX - 2022 , the world largest event for the electronic industry.
Rules enforced at the convention center - proof of vaccination, or tests , face mask on premises and distancing - dependent on your choice.
Entrance on only 1 door where you had to show always proof of vaccination.
Overall they did a good job from this perspective.
Facility was great , as always , clean meeting rooms , very clean restrooms, the main ballroom setup with distanced tables and the food served was also very good.
Escalators and elevators were working at every point - so access was easy everybody.
Parking underneath the building - so you could park your car with ease if you were driving to the event.
Or a train station right across the street if you were using San Diego public transportation.
Clearly marked easy to access drop off/pick up points for those using ride sharing services.
Overall a great place to host any big size event , even in times like this ... if you have doubts attending an event here , I would say just go , you'll have a great time at a great venue.

Nice venue. Came for a cheer competition, and it seemed well run. It has good access from multiple nearby hotels. Definitely recommend the Hilton bayside if you are going to be coming back and forth from here a lot. Only downside is $20 parking with no in and out privileges!

The staff was always helpful and friendly, the food was very good at all of our big parties hosted there and the view was dynamite. My only complaint is the opening reception for our big convention there were not near enough seats for everyone and we we were there on time. May have been the fault of the planners and not the convention center possibly though.
