It was a great show at the Convention Center. Many vendors, many selections. Perfect way to spend a Saturday.

For a number of years now, I have been attending the NHSCA national wrestling tournament at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. The facility is amazing! Parking is easy and plentiful, the restrooms are always clean (not an easy feat with several thousand people there for hours and hours each day), and the staff at the concession stands are the best!...

Very well organized and very well run tournament. Many, many kids but not crowded. Will go back next year.

We were in town for a race, so this was the location of the expo we attended. It was a really nice place. There's really not a whole lot to say about it, but tripAdvisor won't let me just give a score to anything without 50 characters of why and so, here's me rattling on about TripAdvisor because there's nothing...

HUGE convention center. Typical set up for pre-race bib pickup with many vendors or running related gear. Reserved parking spots for electric and hybrid vehicles.

We visited the convention center to pick-up our race packets for the Shamrock Marathon. The building is very aesthetically pleasing and has a unique design. It's super big and made the craziness of pick-up much less crowded and harried. It was also easy to access and park.

It's not new, it's not old and it's not tired. This is a nice, large venue for all kinds of shows - boats, guns, home, etc. It has a large open "lobby area" with the venue areas beyond. Those can be scaled down or opened up depending on the size of the show. Parking is ample, some very close. We... More

The center is a beautiful, mirrored building by the oceanfront. We went for a competition. The people were nice and it wasn't hard to get to

A conference we attended was held here and the building is great. Beautifully done and large to hold our big gatherings for 1000 people but then also perfect to have small sessions in the rooms upstairs. Cool architecture as well.

This is my favorite convention center! Besides the fact that it is architecturally pleasing, its lay-out is very convenient and user-friendly. Pull over in front entrance and go through the entrance doors and voila you are in the lobby/hallway! It is not complicated like a maze; no ups & downs; no elevators, no escalators. Best of all parking is directly... More
