We have compiled a list of hotels in the Convention Center area as there is no official conference hotel. Please note that these are only a few suggestions – we would advise that you do your own research to ensure that all your requirements are met. Please contact the hotels directly with any booking or rate questions.
Virginia Beach’s home on the Mid-Atlantic coastline makes it an easily accessible location for attendees. Within a day’s drive of half the country’s population and right down the road from Norfolk International Airport, major train stations and seaports, Virginia Beach has all the tools to make your arrival and departure simpler than ever.
