Hear What They're Saying


The Virginia Beach Convention Center has worked closely with a number of clients to execute a wide array of successful events over the years. Hear for yourself what they have to say about their experience planning their Virginia Beach event and working with the VBCC team.


It was such a relief not to have to worry about anything knowing your capable staff had it all “under control.” I especially appreciated Antonio’s technical assistance, dependability and easy-going manner.

VBCPS Teacher Forum National Speakers Series 


It was all wonderful. Nothing but compliments. The entire staff at the [VBCC] and [caterer] could not have been better. Also the quality of the food at both the Ladies Brunch and President’s Banquet was excellent. The other locations that SASA goes too, Myrtle Beach and Pigeon Forge does not come close to what we have at Virginia Beach. Thanks so much for all of your personal attention too.

David Monell, SASA Past President

South Atlantic Shrine Association 


You all did a great job! The food was great as well! I heard lots of nice comments! Look forward to working with you again next year!

Mary Kay Regional Sales Convention 


I consider the VA Beach CVB an extension of my office. They took the time to thoroughly understand my event. In every area - they exceeded my expectations. I believe [they] added value to my event, brought quality and professionalism to my team and helped me take my event to a level higher than it could have obtained without their involvement.

Dean Jones, CMP | Conference & Events Manager

Rejuvenate Marketplace 


What a great event! The CVB really did pull out all the stops. I have to say, they are a very special team who provided an excellent experience.

Rejuvenate Marketplace 


The members of my team, as well as my client, were impressed with the professionalism and excellent service we received from the convention center staff at every turn. I felt fortunate to work with a group of professionals that understand the unusual balance of calm and efficiency that keeps the rest of us on track. I am pleased to now consider Virginia Beach for my other clients’ needs knowing that the city can truly offer excellent service and execution of a flawless program.

Thanks for going the extra mile in making our holiday party a great success! Everyone had a wonderful time and enjoyed every aspect of the event. We plan to rebook with you for our next holiday party. We have been hearing nothing but good things from everyone who attended.

USS George Washington Holiday Banquet 

This was STIHL’s third holiday party in as many years at the VBCC. I’ve been fortunate to have worked with the same event staff. We keep to the same format, just changing up the food and decor. We feel the Center’s staff is hard working and they give us excellent service. We hope to see you next year!

This was a wonderful event. This team did a great job making everything happen for us, and the food and service was excellent!

Connie Boucher

Navy Seal 4 Team Dinner 


Everyone had a great time at the party and was very impressed with the decor of the room, the courteous staff and the food. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating at the party. We will certainly keep the [VBCC] in mind next year!

Kimberly Holland

Kimley-Horn Holiday Party 


Weather was horrible and the van was already circulating parking lot for our guests. Several VBCC staff volunteered & provided umbrella coverage for guests coming off the bus. This was such great customer service without having to ask! We wanted to have a bit different feel and atmosphere for this year, all the recommendations were spot on. The VIP reception was the best in five years!

Gretchen Allen, Director

United Way of South Hampton Roads Women’s Initiative Luncheon 


Thank you for a great event! Everyone had a fabulous time and the food was very good. I’ve had several people tell me how good the food was and was a great time they had. We’ll have to do it again!

Cindy Fletcher

SL Nusbaum Holiday Party 


Everyone has been saying how wonderful the food was. The food was excellent and so was your staff. Everyone did a great job and I truly appreciate all your hard work in helping me put this together.

Joanie Ford

Liberty Tax Holiday Party 


What a great experience! From start to finish, the Sales and Catering staff were A+, and the facilities exceeded our expectations. We look forward to working with the Virginia Beach Convention Center in the future.

Kimberly Bronk

Cox Communications Employee Gala 


With your help and Jane’s, we put up a top notch event that impressed the boss and other attendees. Col Bligh was most impressed with the food service and the ability to add that table at the last minute. My meter stick was based on the glowing conversations and reactions of the attendees over the night. The best testament was the stragglers that stayed until midnight even after the CMC left.

Marine Corp Birthday Ball


 The experience was exceptionally coordinated and executed and the staff was superb. Many kudos and thanks to everyone there. I hope to someday work with them again.
