The LB Convention center is located in one of the most picturesque locations in Los Angeles area. Walk to shops, theaters, marina, water front, the Aquarium of the Pacific etc. When you come for a convention, take an extra few days and relax before or after the convention, atleast 1 day. It will be worth it.

The convention center staff was very pleasant and friendly. They always seemed to want to assist in anyway possible. That being said, the building engineer needs to check on his or her guest a lot more. On the first day of our conference rooms were far to hot and on the second day the rooms felt like a sauna. The... More

I was here for a conference and was able to experience most rooms in the venue. The classrooms were excellent with the right technology support required. The ball rooms and exhibitor halls were flexible and attractive during speaking events and banquets. I would recommend this venue for larger events. I was also impressed with how well branded the conference was,... More

It has a very nice layout. Parking is abundant ( for a fee) easy in and out. Main enterance has many, many steps and not well marked. The window views are great too.

There is little to rant and rave with convention centers. It really comes more down to what is near it, than what it offers. This convention center is conveniently located near the Pacific Aquarium and shopping outlets. Of course, avoid the restaurants in the area, as they are overly commercial and cater toward the lost traveler who lacks a discerned... More

The Venue: Mid-size compared to Staple Center. The arena is a little bit outdated. The seats are getting old and not much legroom. The Show: Disney On Ice - Definitely kids paradise. All their familiar Disney characters. Wish there is more interaction with audience. Or meet & greet with the Disney characters. It is too dark to take pictures with... More

The last event I attended at the Convention Center was a Food Show for work. Really enjoyed the different types of food along with different ways to cook it,
