In my line if work I visit way too many convention centers. If all of them were as good as this one my job would be much easier. Excellent space, support and facilities, I would definitely recommend for anyone planning a large event.

The convention center is at the heart of recent and new construction to San Antonio's downtown area. A large expansion project is open or nearly open and a new cultural center is being built nearby. The facilities are nice and have a San Antonio Hill Country vibe which is nice. It is conveniently located adjacent to the River Center Mall,... More

I spent 4 days at a convention here and found it to easily fit all the people (lots of them) that were there. It was bright and airy which was helpful in staying awake and excited during all the classes and trade show we were there to participate in. Everyone working this venue was happy and very helpful. I look... More

Attended a photography conference at this site. Lots of room to move and everyone was friendly if you needed directions to a location.

This place looks beautiful with the new expansion. The staff here is really nice. I work in the convention center a couple times a year and they have refurbed what was already nice convention center. One of the best convention centers I have worked in for the last 25+ years.

It is important to view many of the shops as prices seem to vary. Brightly colored dresses, servingware, tiles, garden decor present. Purchases for all age ranges. A true feeling of Mexico.

Though parking is still a challenge, the newly renovated facility is very attractive. It will be nice when the construction on that block is done.

This is a theater located inside the convention center. There is no listing for the theater as its part of the convention center. Very poor signage!! Could not find it from the streets. With hotels and other things around, you would imagine you could find this place, but it was impossible. One person told us look for the sign to... More

Beautiful building housing a truly great convention center right in the heart of San Antonio River Walk. It functions very well, the staff working programs are very professional. AND as I mentioned, everything is a short walk away
