Very interesting facility architecturally. Parking is a little cumbersome and the broad esplanade crossing into it from parking though visually appealing requires a little attention especially if you have kids with you. But the facility is well designed inside so shows are easy to navigate.

The new convention center is a big plus for this community. A great looking building that is being well cared for by people who want to keep it as an excellent venue. My kudos to the staff.

Good food at a decent price for a convention center. Very clean, well organized, plenty of parking. Went for a car show and have been to many trade shows and this was a good event.

We went for the 2017 Dealer Show. It is a completely none selling event so you get to check out car's you want without any pressure. Nice venue.

Good clean fun. A decent snack food bar. plenty of free parking. Easy 5 minute walk from double tree. 10$ to get in and about 3 hours of entertainment.

For the amount of people at this event the parking was great - the staff was rude to kids, & the bathrooms were always low on supplies. I was disappointed in the food choices with all the wrestlers they had at this event - fried,...More

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...More

There are a bunch nearby. Too many to mention. Google hotel in Virginia Beach area. All for the most part are newer than the one we stayed in. A few new ones are being built when we were in town. Good luck!
