Getting there is half the fun. Finding a place to park without parking in the actual ball park parking lot and crossing ball park way - that's the challenge.
And this convention center is repeatedly losing all the good events to Dallas and Fort Worth, or even Grapevine. Aside from a few OK arts and craft shows, I haven't seen a good event at this place in five years. And security and control at the events I've been at are questionable.

PROS:
CONS: poor parking

This is a facility with major perks:
Size (VERY big for a mid-cities convention center)
Lots of Parking (especially if they allow you to park in the Ameriquest Field Parking)
Location, Location, Location (not too far from Highway 360 or I20)
Hotels within walking distance (there is a hotel literally 50 feet away)

Major drawbacks:
Scheduling (with Rangers games in the spring and summer, all of the parking and traffic can make many events unaccessible)
Concessions (concessions can be expensive over the course of an event. You are advised to bring your own sodas, water, and snacks.)

PArking fees are about $5 so not killer if you are going for an all day event, job fair, and such.

I've been coming out here for years for the amateur radio convention held all weekend and have loved it's location and size. Even the little classrooms/meeting rooms are great for added presentations.

Well i cant say that i have planned anything her for myself but the events that i have attended here have been pretty impresive. High school proms are perfect here, and they also hold the cinderella balls here.
