We were recently an exhibitor there for an event. It was very expensive & the Unions have strict rules on what you can & can't do yourself there. The workers spoke & looked like Carnies with foul mouths & neck tattoos. The concessions stand was...More

We attended the travel and adventure show at this venue. The location is great, right near the Levi's Stadium and is easy to find. Plenty of parking and well marked guidelines to the venue halls.

Attended first ever Alien Con. Event was terrific though convention center dropped the ball over booking their event, changing rooms on event planners and falling short on assistance. Beautiful facility though lacks staff and professional event planners.

We visited the Santa Clare Convention Center for the Alien Con in October. Our only complaint is that there were several conferences going on at one time which made it a little confusing regarding location of seminars.

I attended Alien Con here and I thought the convention center was very nice and convenient. I would attend another convention here.

Please note during events for Levi that the parking can be closed or very limited as people try use the free park instead of paying for one of the Levi lots.
