Nice place for a Cheer competition. Roomy, good parking area (not a long walk to center), large area waiting area that is very bright due to all the windows. We've been in larger places but this is a solid place to visit and compete.

I came here for shamrock marathon expo and it was a busy event. The parking lot is more than sufficient for any event. It has a few levels and plenty of facilities. The building itself has a nautical vibe with a modernized feel to it....More

The Convention Center is large and can accommodate any size group. There are small suites, ballrooms, and expansive exhibit space. The staff are fabulously friendly and accommodating. For groups seeking an environmentally friendly environment, the convention center is also LEED certified.

Very interesting facility architecturally. Parking is a little cumbersome and the broad esplanade crossing into it from parking though visually appealing requires a little attention especially if you have kids with you. But the facility is well designed inside so shows are easy to navigate.

The new convention center is a big plus for this community. A great looking building that is being well cared for by people who want to keep it as an excellent venue. My kudos to the staff.

Good food at a decent price for a convention center. Very clean, well organized, plenty of parking. Went for a car show and have been to many trade shows and this was a good event.

We went for the 2017 Dealer Show. It is a completely none selling event so you get to check out car's you want without any pressure. Nice venue.

I've been here for many events. Great looking building especially the exterior. Versatile interior space. Wish it had a better restaurant on the premises but otherwise a great experience. Can walk to Beach Bully BarBQ and nearby Indian food. Parking is okay with plenty of...More

There are a bunch nearby. Too many to mention. Google hotel in Virginia Beach area. All for the most part are newer than the one we stayed in. A few new ones are being built when we were in town. Good luck!
