Hampton Roads Convention Center

1610 Coliseum Drive
Hampton, VA 23666

White sails above the entrance to the Hampton Roads Convention Center provide a visual reminder of the first settlers to reach this area by sea over 400 years ago.

Today’s visitors to this impressive facility travel here for a variety of purposes; to share ideas, compete in athletic competitions, and introduce new products, just to name a few, in surroundings as inspirational as they are functional.

 

A model of flexibility, the center’s 344,000 square feet and 35 event spaces contain three exhibit halls, a multi-configurable grand ballroom, a conference center with private access and an enormous amount of pre-function area.
