“One of the world's top convention centers, A gem!”

Phoenix Civic Plaza Convention Center
Ranked #39 of 234 things to do in Phoenix
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2017

The convention center in Phoenix is one of the finest I have been to. They have events from small to enormous and do it all with great expertise. If you are putting on an event make sure to check them out before you make a decision. A great value with exceptional facilities and service!

Sometimes convention centers are poorly designed, too big, or have hard to understand directions inside. I must say, after just a few hours, I found this one easy to navigate. They were accommodating in every way, offered lots of food, and at a reasonable price. There are several hotels within walking distance, as well as restaurants. We had a group of 5,000, and i never had to wait for a bathroom!

Friendly staff, great facilities, plenty of walking space, comfortable environment. Very impressed with layout and design of the convention center. We were in the North building.

Most recently we came for the Superbowl a couple years ago and the phoenix comicon couple weeks ago and i just love this place. It's great for anything, kids, family, couples, friends. Whatever. It depends on the events going on at the time but the Superbowl even was so fun!! The comicon got strict this year and banned all props because of an incident but i feel safe knowing they handled it in a timely manner and phoenix PD did their job.

Went for Phoenix Comic-Con. They had people in yellow shirts that I was told they were security but they had no idea what to do. Last year they had everyone be checked for weapons and presence was everywhere. This year they must have missed that meeting because day one someone got by with real weapons with a plan to do harm. Next day everyone (well most) were wanded and bags glanced at. They limited access and had huge long lines. 3rd day was better they opened earlier. but still I saw groups go in without being checked at all. The lack of security is now causing a ban of any and all prop weapons. And the ban is happening in many places.
