We won tickets to the Virginia Beach Antiques Roadshow event on June 25, 2016. The VB Covention Center is enormous, with beautiful, contemporary design in structure and landscape. The parking lot is gi-normous, barely filled for the event.

Big and overrated. I have been here for many events and did not think it was so fabulous. It has good parking across the street and is close to the Indigo.

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.

I've been to several events here and most recently it was the Pet Expo . The venue is clean and well managed . 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
