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.

I've been here for many events. Great looking building especially the exterior. Versatile interior space. Wish it had a better restaurant on the premises but otherwise a great experience. Can walk to Beach Bully BarBQ and nearby Indian food. Parking is okay with plenty of pedestrian crosswalks.

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, fast food and then the healthy choices they had ended up having mold on them.... 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 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.
