We came here for a convention and it was a perfect venue. There's a lot of restaurants within walking distance and a Starbucks inside. There's a huge room for plenary sessions and great breakout rooms.

Loved that the convention center is located in the center of downtown Sacramento. A few hotels are conveniently located within walking distance as well as many restaurants. For convention food, it was not bad at all. I would enjoy another event at this location.

Visited the last week of March for a sports commissions symposium. The convention center was very clean, the staff accommodating and beautiful and the catering was equally delicious.

I attended a sports symposium here and thought the space, catering and ease of getting around made for a great conference. The hotels, restaurants, attractions and transportation were all nearby if not connected. Biggest surprise was how good the conference food/catering was - very creative...More

I have been to many events and professional meetings at the convention center. This place gives you a feeling of more importance as you attend your meetings or functions.

Been going to a teacher's conference every March for 5 maybe 6 years now. OK facility. Food's adequate. Park across the street at the Sheraton if available. Get your coffee by the Sheraton parking elevator also.
