Virginia Beach is more than a top Virginia meeting destination with unbeatable service—it’s a game-changer in providing affordable and excellent meeting experiences. Where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Chesapeake Bay, this premier destination balances coastal charm and metropolitan flair with meeting experiences that create a distinct vibe for meetings of any size and budget.
Abundant & Green Event Space
For larger events, the LEED Gold-certified Virginia Beach Convention Center offers a 150,000 square foot column-free exhibit hall, more than 29,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and a 31,000 square foot column-free ballroom. Innovative designs throughout the building allow for a stimulating meeting environment along with huge cost savings, especially with affordable F&B pricing and free WI-FI in all meeting rooms and pre-function space.
From well-known national brands to independent properties, Virginia Beach offers a wide variety of lodging options from resort, downtown to retreat type settings. The coastal city’s portfolio has gotten an exciting upgrade as the Cavalier Resort is set to open its third hotel on its campus in less than 5 years.
Previously, the historic Cavalier, Marriott’s Autograph Collection opened its doors with unrivaled luxury and historic charm followed by the Marriott Oceanfront Hotel. The 20-story, 305-room Marriott Oceanfront with over 25,000 square feet of programmable meeting space and spectacular outdoor space with ocean vistas will now sit next to the Embassy Suites Oceanfront.
By early 2023, the Embassy Suites Oceanfront will offer an additional 155 oceanfront rooms and 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space to this incredible oceanfront meeting conclave.
