This is the Life.

There's more to this than soft sand and rolling waves. It's about waking up early because you want to, just to be the first in line at the edge of the Earth while putting everything else behind you. The roar of the surf echoes in applause, welcoming you as the sun kisses your forehead and the world floats by with the clouds and the gulls on the ocean breeze. Sparkling Coastline. Shining Skyline. And a lively spirit of Collaboration. It all makes Virginia Beach a meeting locale to rival any on the East Coast. With more hotels, entertainment, shopping and dining options than ever, it's the ideal place to bring people together year-round. You'll find the perfect balance of coastal charm and big-city amenities. From the oceanfront resorts area's instant access to sand, surf and open air, to Town Center's modern city feel, Virginia Beach offers a broad range of accommodations, meeting environments and dining options. There's a Virginia Beach vibe that's right for your event. At the center of it all is the Virginia Beach Convention Center, a sustainable facility, whose forward-thinking features are right at home amid warmth and soaring beauty. This inviting and award-winning modern space embodies our approach - big-picture thinking that gets the details right, with infinite flexibility. Here, the days pass like waves; no two are the same – but each one celebrated like the greatest that has ever lived. Tales of amazing adventures, of love lost and found, of victory and defeat. A collection of moments, like grains of sand stirring around your feet – an age-old magical kind of pixie dust. And, just like that – you will be transformed.
