Entrance closest to Elevators to all upper levels
The Front Circle Drive has a ramp with rails that leads through automatic glass doors that take you into the first level of the Convention Center. This is the Channel Entrance. There are also escalators on either side of this entrance that take you to the 2nd floor (Registration Level).
Another ramp to the left of the Channel Entrance leads onto the Tampa Riverwalk and on the opposite side of the circle is a ramp to The Sail restaurant & bar.
Elevators inside on 1st floor just beyond the café.
These elevators can also be accessed from the Franklin Street entrance by going down the Ballroom corridor. A secondary elevator is located inside the Administrative Entrance, just outside of the Franklin Street Entrance. There is also an inside escalator from the 1st floor to the 2nd floor (Registration Level).
At the Tampa Convention Center, we strive to reduce accessibility barriers as visitors move within the four floors of our facility. For this reason, escalators are located throughout our venue, including on the outside near our Channel Entrance.
All bathrooms are ADA accessible.
