Like a fine actor, Virginia is difficult to typecast.
Mountains and sea, Civil War battles and the modern Navy, substantial metro suburbs and vivacious villages, Virginia, the state that nurtured much of this country’s early greatness, continues to lead in many areas, including meetings and conventions.
Personable, yet professional, Virginia’s small towns welcome meeting attendees. Because Virginia is at the midpoint of the Eastern Seaboard, it is accessible for regional gatherings. Its towns’ varied settings and specialties make it simple for meeting planners to find a good fit for their specific needs. For example, Fredericksburg, a historic village, is near metropolitan Washington and has its own exposition center. Chesapeake, on the fringe of the massive Hampton Roads area, makes the best of its waterways. Mountains and a meeting center at a major crossroads are Wytheville’s calling card.
