Had the opportunity of attending another show/seminar at the Convention center in Va Beach. I will say that this place has always made me smile to the fact that the people are exceptionally nice and always willing to help. No stuffy guards with attitudes and contractors with rules that only benefit them. The parking is free and the shops and... More

This facility is very spacious, very well layed out, great loading docks for vendors, large parking lot with plenty of parking. Beautiful building very well layed out. Facility close to airport, hotels, and plenty of restaurants for your dining pleasures. Annual events ongoing for the traveling advocate to find something to do.

Attended conference here. Stayed at the Double Tree that is about quarter mile walk so not bad. The space is huge but easy to navigate with plenty parking.

Signing is good, which is appreciated, because there are usually mutilple events going on. The parking can usually accomodate the crowd too! The only area I would rate as below average is the food. Although, it will... More

Both the Expo, and the Start, was at the Convention Center- everything was convenient and easy. Things looked a little iffy for a while, with the storm Hermine coming thru- but the Expo was fine Saturday, no problems with packet pickup, & the grounds and race route were cleared and ready for action first thing Sunday. And the weather cooperated-... More
