Annual Christmas Bizarre was fun, but parking is poor.

Lots of crafts to admire---seems like the venue is getting smaller. Lots of walking, but we had a good time and will be back next year!!

Good thing I went earlier than I needed to for the event I wanted to attend because after 9:00am the parking lot was jammed without a spot to be found. Inside, staff was friendly and courteous but the lines for the bathroom and snackbar were way too long and moved way to slowly. Overall, decent spot for a venue.

I attended a Car Show at the Virginia Beach Convention Center for the first time. This venue is very large and appears to be able to accommodate various types of functions. It is large and has multiple levels and rooms. If you are considering a place to host your function, consider the Virginia Beach Convention Center.

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.
