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

I had the chance to visit the convention center for a project meeting and I was surprised to find the place so huge and modern with plenty of parking and open spaces. Very close to the VA beach hotels and restaurants and easy access to the Interstate highway 264. It's about a good twenty minutes drive to Norfolk and ODU.

The place is huge for our area. Lots of walking and hopefully you know where to go before you start walking. Parking isn't too bad. In the winter a catwalk would help with the beach winds. I go when I have to but try to avoid going.
