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.

This is a great location for a large group. The parking was good. The vendor area was ample. It was easy to get to and easy to leave.

Take a look and see who's coming, and watch for the discounted tickets to pop on different web sites. Don't wait til the last minute, work to find the good prices/discounts early.
