On the Embarcadero in downtown San Diego, the Convention Center
offers the finest of facilities for trade shows, conventions, and
even corporate meetings of all sizes. There are even landscaped
terraces that overlook the bay which are accessible for breaks and
outdoor events. This massive 2.6 million square
feet building is home of many conventions held throughout the year.
This building was completed in 1989 and then expanded in 2001 where
it doubled it's size. The unique build of the center was built to
reflect the maritime history that San Diego has.
Many well known conventions are held in the convention center such
as the American Psychology Association Convention, the International
Auto Show, and the Boat Show. The biggest one is the annual Comic
Con which draws over 100,000 people a year where comic book fans and
other pop culture related fans come to see the convention.
This is a very popular place among visitors because of it's
brilliant location. It is located in the Marina district in Downtown San
Diego where visitors who go to the conventions can also
have fun in the city afterwards. Near the convention center, there are many
exclusive five-star hotels to rest in. There is also the Gaslamp
Quarter, Horton Plaza, Petco Park, and Seaport Village to visit. All of these places are within walking
distances so it will not be hard to find.
