Along with 1,800 other urban planners and city officials I attended an APA conference. The convention center large, spacious and spread out with parking structures close by. The biggest bummer was that the now wifi service was provide to the attendees that paid more $800 for a two day event. BAD - BAD

A lovely building and fun place to take in a convention. Old Town Pasadena has so much to offer, too. The only setback? The ridiculous parking--designed to either set you back far too much money or get you an overpriced parking ticket. CAUTION: Not all parking rules are posted. Visitors beware.

The lovely facilities are adjacent to Old Town Pasadena as well as a modern shopping mall just across the street. Plenty of hotels, restaurants and bars in the immediate areas, the entire district is very walkable for SoCal. A capstone banquet held al fresco in the plaza fronting the center was the perfect way to end the congress. It was... More

This place is located across from the so-so Pasadena Mall. I went there to see my Son Willie be sworn into the California Bar. (Yes I am bragging about my boy) Anyway in the Old day they use to hold operas there. Now its mostly used for ceremonies. None the less the decor and surrounding are well worth the time... More

I was in the convention center to attend the National Celiac Disease Foundation Conference and Gluten-free Expo. The convention center is a great facility: large meeting spaces with good audio/visual capabilities, smooth food service delivery and cleanup, clean safe environment. Would recommend this location for all types of meetings.

This center consists of 3 large buildings - an expo hall/ballroom, an older civic auditorium, and another building with many meeting rooms. The facility was nice and clean, overall pretty comfortable.
