As convention centers go, this one is not large for a major city. However it is smack downtown and conveniently located to gov't offices, over priced hotels, and the capitol of the 6th largest economy in the world. It has a small city feel, but can hold some decent sized conventions. Parking can be challenging after 8 or 9 am... More

I have attended many events here over many years. It is easy to get to, and lots of parking around. Many events here from tattoo shows, to sports competitions, to art/craft shows. It is an event facility - not a place just to see as a building. The answers to the questions in the review vary with the specific event... More

This downtown location is central to Sacramento. Parking is tricky, but the symposium I attended offered parking at Raley's Field and shuttled us to the convention center. Easy access to the large facility with lifts and escalators within. Food court on the main floor and restrooms throughout. WiFi available with good signal.

A nice enough convention centre; lack of Wifi was a real pain. Location is good because spouses not at a convention can visit many things on foot [State Capital and much more]

I am late on my review but this is a really nice convention site. It is always clean and surrounded by so many good places. We go to the comic Convention each year and have always had a great time.

Our convention was held here and the Hyatt. Spacious exhibit hall, great rooms and the staff made sure everything was working. They took care of all technology glitches. We had several problems at the Hyatt with tech stuff, but the convention center was on it! Located in the midst of great places to eat!

The Sacramento convention center is well organized, easy to get around to different rooms - and has a Starbucks on the main floor. It's also a short walk from many great restaurants, so this makes it a great place for business trips.

Location is central, near l street. Although parking is difficult- except in the nearby paying parking. Local craft people offer their own creations ( glass , leather , jewlery ,artistic clothing, books, etc ) every year, over 350 to 400 stands press themselves through the show. All crafts-people wait for the fall offerings. ( some food, music and fair like... More
