Long Beach Convention Center Travelodge

Recommendations

Convenience and Service On the Waterfront, An Eventective User from Orange, CA

I do 2 trade shows at the Long Beach Convention Center each year, and we take up a few conference rooms as well as one or more of the exhibit hall floors. Each show or conference is assigned a manager who makes life really easy, troubleshooting problems, answering questions, and generally being the Center's point of contact for us. However, we've always had great relationships with the security, cleaning crew, catering staff, and maintenance people. Parking is usually more than adequate, and on the few dates where we have been showing alongside other events, they make sure to place ample electronic signage on all the major cross-streets approaching the center to help keep confusion to an absolute minimum. Concessions are usually well-stocked and staffed by friendly employees, though of course attendees complain about the concession prices (don't they all?). In addition to concession stands built into the exhibit halls, there is a cafe in the Pine street lobby and there are several restaurants across the street from the main entrance. Finally, it's pretty inexpensive. There are a few reputable, non-union decorators who will work with you on your budget. The union decorators are also very good, though of course more expensive. The center itself tries to maintain a balance of fair price and high service, so you're always getting a good value for your footage charges. Wifi is available, though at an additional cost. I would definitely recommend the Long Beach Convention Center, especially if you're looking for someplace that your show can grow with in a great, popular city with a great nightlife.
