Convenience, affordability, adequate space and amenities, proximity to after-hours entertainment - these are all things meeting planners consider when deciding where to hold their next conference or convention.  They're also all the things that make Chesapeake an excellent spot to hold a meeting in the Mid-Atlantic.

Chesapeake's Greenbrier meeting district is located only 15 minutes from Norfolk International Airport and is conveniently accessible from the region's three major interstate highways - I-64, I-264, and I-464.  The city has more than 35,000 square feet of comfortable and varied meeting space, with 23,000 square feet of that space concentrated in the crisply designed Chesapeake Conference Center.

If you want an especially unique meeting destination, check out Portlock Galleries at SoNo, or an outdoor gathering at the Chesapeake Arboretum. 

Chesapeake's hotels cater to business professionals, offering over 4,000 rooms with amenities ranging from high-speed Internet access to health spas and fitness centers.  The hotels have thousands of square feet of meeting and banquet space available, while a variety of Chesapeake hotels provide rooms for board meetings and retreats of all descriptions.

The Chesapeake Conventions and Tourism staff can help you plan and can help you make conference site inspections, coordinate lodging for your group, and organize complimentary visitor packets for your meeting attendees. Their office can be reached at 1-888-889-5551, or visit online at
