Fifteen minutes from Norfolk (VA) International Airport, the Chesapeake Conference Center opened in late September. The facility offers Virginia's largest ballroom (20,000 square feet) and nine meeting rooms, and is within walking distance of 650 hotel rooms.
The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre closed this summer to expand greatly its catering facilities and to reconfigure and renovate meeting space. With the changes, the facility now has the capacity for silver-service banquets for up to 500 persons. Dinners and special events can be served up with views of Westminster Abbey.
