“As any event planner knows, moving people is challenging, unpredictable and no easy task. I am pretty sure that when the term “herding cats” was coined, they were talking about conference participants! Somehow the folks at the Virginia Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau make round the clock shuttle transportation between multiple hotels and the Convention Center appear easy, efficient and effortless. During our conventions this is one element I never worry about. I know that Teri Wiley and her team have it entirely under control and move our participants safely and on time always with a smile and an easy laugh. I never would have thought it could be done without a glitch and I am happy to say that Teri proves me wrong every time.”

"Triumph Enterprises utilized the Virginia Beach CVB transportation services for our 2011 Mentor Protege Conference, February 28 - March 3, 2011. The process from beginning to end was flawless, due to the leading efforts of Ms. Teri Wiley. The schedule was accommodating and provided a smooth transition from the hotels to the convention center. The competitive pricing was an added value and afforded us to stay within our budget."

Director, Conferences & Meetings
"I want to express my thanks to everyone at the Virginia Beach CVB for an outstanding job hosting the 2010 USA Track & Field Annual Meeting. The VBCVB proved to be a gracious event partner. By all accounts, our athletes, coaches, officials and administrators were provided the highest level of service and courtesy. The transportation from the beach hotels to the Convention Center ran smoothly and proved to be one of the nicest features of our convention experience in Virginia Beach. The meeting space in the convention center was modern, clean and spacious. Everything our attendees needed was available in the Convention Center. The operations staff there was attentive to our every need. USA Track & Field would look forward to returning to Virginia Beach for future events."
