Came here for an AAU basketball tournament. It was well managed. The staff at the ticket office and snack bar were very friendly and polite. The place was very clean. The parking was plentiful and convenient. I found it very cold inside but I suppose that was for the benefit of the players. Overall a very good experience.

Attended convention Center for a Wrestling Tournament. Bathrooms & eating choices were very good. Food choices much better than the Excel in St. Paul, MM & prices less expensive. They did not check purses or backpacks like most event centers. It was well organized, but did not have specific areas for wrestlers to wait for their next match like the... More

I have been there to pick up my bib number for shamrock half-marathon. The place works very well for huge events like that. I didnt use the parking lot but apparently there are enough holes.

Parking for this location is not good. I would recommend expanding the parking lot by building up a parking ramp with multiple catwalk or sub terrain access for pedestrians. Traffic that is not part of the convention center event get angry drivers and is dangerous.

This place is huge and can hold hundreds of craft vendors. Worth a trip, especially for the Christmas show! Lots of parking and good food available.

We had a very successful Green Schools conference here. Many thanks for the free wi-fi (a bit slow but that's okay). Nice facilities!

There's always something happening here at the Va Beach convention center. The facility hosts everything from boat shows to flower shows and everything in between. It's especially great to go there in the winter, when not much is happening (other than cold and clouds or rain) outside. Prices can vary and try to get discount coupons either on line or... More
