Very nice Convention Center. We attended a graduation here last year (not ever an incredibly fun enjoyable experience, but not the Convention Center's fault :/) and this year we attended a Gem, Mineral, and Jewelry Show. A fabulous place with clean bathrooms and ample, ample parking. I did not see much in the way of food or drink, although I... More

This facility was actually ready for almost 3000 professional women. It was so refreshing to actually attend a conference that believed he amount of people in attendance. They seemed not to be prepared fully on the first day because they only had one eatery open, but I didn't hear any additional concerns after that day. I really liked how the... More

Have visited this venue about 8 times over the past two years for Cheer Competitions. The overall design is appealing. It needs more designed seating areas for these events, and larger and/or more bathrooms. It would also be helpful for designed charging areas for electronics, which is always in high demand during these events. The location is only about 5... More

She and her team (Reckless Cheer) from Northern Virginia, won first place in their category. What a great experience for her and us. The Virginia Beach Convention Center is an outstanding facility for this and many... More

Well set-out, plenty of parking, restrooms and actually pretty good food!. But the wifi was awful! Had trouble with laptop, ipad and smartphone. Granted, I was at an event for a thousand teens, but still. The building itself was attractive with water features, suspended art and clean facilities.
