I can't begin to count the number of times I've been here for events. For concerts, Oktoberfest, shows, etc... The structure may have aged, but the venue is timeless. The location downtown is ideal. The only problem is the parking and how far you may end up walking if you have to park too far away.
We enjoyed a 2 day seminar at this facility. It was clean and comfortable. If you want snacks or drinks from the concession stand, think twice. They charge $3.50 for a 20oz soda, plus a bag of chips totalled over $6.00.
Been to many conventions here. It is better than Dallas because it is easier to park, walk and enjoy. VERY close to hotels like Omni, Hilton, Embassy, etc. Ft Worth is not all uptight like Dallas is for streets and traffic. They don't abuse the parking prices. Tons of food is very close!
I found the convention center to be clean and well laid-out making moving from event to event very easy. Meals were done well and I enjoyed the location and internal facilities.
The FW convention center is a great place for a large event. I say large events simply because it is a big place. It has very flexible spaces to accommodate groups of various sizes. Ther also is good parking and the Omni hotel close by. All in all, definitely recommend if you are an event planner.
Just the perfect size for our meeting. Incredible staff while we are planning and the A/V staff was awesome. Lots of help along the way and lots of choices for food in the area. They did a great job overall.
