Here for a large convention (about 40,000). In moving around, it felt crowded for the number of people. Elevators running the wrong direction, etc.

This is a nice conference area but when there are 40,000 people it is difficult to get in and out of. Felt trapped a lot as not many stair areas and escalators are small. I'm sure it would be perfect for any smaller groups.

Very large place so wear comfy shoes! Several escalators to move people to different levels. Good security and helpful attendants. Good signage to help you find your way around. Many meeting rooms. Main hall is HUGE!

I was attending a convention at this venue and there was room for 42,000 people. They were easily accommodated in the spaces but a times it took a long time to get from place to place and it involved lots of walking.
