Meeting Planning in Norfolk, VA
The Virginia Beach Convention Center
Located just 12 miles southwest of Norfolk International Airport, the new $202.5 million Virginia Beach Convention Center adds yet another outstanding option for meeting and convention groups. Completed in 2007, the convention center has become a premier facility for the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Area offering easy access to the region's many historic and maritime attractions. Located just blocks away from the glistening sands of Virginia's shoreline, this first-class facility provides more than 500,000 square feet of space including a 150,000-square-foot column-free exhibit hall, 28,929 square feet of meeting rooms and a 31,029-square-foot ballroom.
An artful design, the building blends the use of water, wood and natural light to create an awe-inspiring reflection of the area's coastal spirit. Beyond the convention center's breathtaking structure, meeting planners find an endless array of amenities and technology such as a 360-foot video wall, programmable LED lighting in the center's ballroom, wireless and wired high-speed Internet access, an on-site caterer and 2,230 free parking spaces.
