Virginia Beach Convention Center

Virginia Beach Convention Center Here at the Virginia Beach Convention Center, we’re experts of enjoyment. We’ve got everything ready for you – see you soon. We bring people together like sand and surf.
(1171)

Virginia Beach is a meeting locale that rivals any on the East Coast. With more hotels, entertainment, shopping and dining options than ever, it’s the ideal place to bring people together year-round. You’ll find the perfect balance of coastal charm and big-city amenities. There’s a Virginia Beach vibe that’s right for your event. At the center of it all is the Virginia Beach Convention Center, the Nation's first convention center to earn LEED® Gold certification1 from the U.S. Green Building Council. It can hold any size meeting imaginable, with over 516,000 gross sq. ft., over 150,000 sq. ft. of column-free exhibit space, nearly 29,000 sq. of meeting space, over 31,000 sq. ballroom (one of the largest on the east coast), and 2,209 free parking spaces.

1The VBCC earned the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification in the Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) category. The LEED for Existing Buildings Rating System helps building owners and operators measure operations, improvements and maintenance on a consistent scale, with the goal of maximizing operational efficiency while minimizing environmental impacts.

REPOST via Virginia Beach City Government

Have you seen the new Neighborhood Identifiers in ViBe Creative District? The “V” shaped pillars mark the corners of the intersections leading from 19th Street at Parks Avenue near the Virginia Beach Convention Center east to Baltic Avenue at the resort. Painted by 8 local teens, these public artworks are visible 24 hours a day and help create a sense of place and arrival within the arts district. They are lit at night with uplighting from the base of the structures.
