Went there for a day-long conference. The signage was easy to follow. They have escalators and elevators as well as stairs so many ways to move around the venue. Good sound and audio-visual support so every session was enjoyable.

I've been to a few work conferences here. Good sound and light systems. The catering is great, with lovely staff. Nice bathrooms. Lots of stairs though - if the escalators are down and you have mobility issues, definitely wait for the elevator.More
