We had a blast attending Fan Fest here. It was so clean in downtown Phoenix. No trash anywhere on the sidewalks or street. Police were visible. The event was extremely well organized and staff very helpful. Well done!

This event was an absolute blast for the kids. We spent 3 hours at the convention center playing all the games. The security staff was very helpful and expedited the screening process. Great place to host that event.

It shouldn't be a problem to enter the convention center, but if there is a conference going on, then certain areas/ballrooms may have access limited to conference attendees.
