Huge facility, easy to find. Very nice but parking not the most convenient. Was attending for a DECA competition.

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.

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.

Nice place and not far from Virginia beach! You could walk from the convention center to the beach/boardwalk if you feel like it.
