About the Hampton Roads Convention Center
It occupies a place in the center of beautiful downtown Hampton, making dining and accommodations for visitors easy to acquire. The Hampton Roads Convention Center is spread over two floors. The first floor is made primarily of exhibition space. There is a large open exhibition area on the first floor that opens onto a wide concourse. This space can be rented as it is or can be divided into up to three smaller halls, each with their own access and bathroom and loading facilities to make it easy to use no matter how many events are ongoing at the convention center.
The first floor also contains nine meeting rooms as well as four larger conference rooms. These rooms can access multiple bathrooms as well as the grand staircase and the lobby for ease of use.
The second floor of the Hampton Roads Convention Center also contains meeting rooms. A further eleven meeting rooms are available on the second floor, which provides access to bathrooms and a view of the exhibition hall below.
The second floor is also the site of the grand ballroom, a massive room that can be divided into up to seven separate ballrooms for smaller events or receptions. Even divided, each ballroom has its own access and entrance for privacy. The convention center has an on-site culinary center than can provide food for meeting attendees as well as full meals for weddings or banquets.
Things to do in Hampton
Hampton also played a role in the Civil War. Fort Monroe, located near Hampton, remained a Union holding despite the widespread adoption of Virginia as a Confederate state. As such, Hampton and Fort Monroe were major centers of escaped slaves and became a symbol of freedom for many during the Civil War. Hampton today has beach access and historical monuments and museums that convey the history of the town and allow visitors to enjoy both the modern comforts of coastal Virginia and the historical past of the area.
