The New Norfolk: where your meetings takes center stage.
Norfolk's downtown meeting place is the "Waterside Convention Connection"--a central collection of hotels, convention, and retail space perfectly suited to host your next event. Located inside the Marriott Hotel is the Norfolk Waterside Convention Center, featuring premier facilities and 60,000 square feet of function space. The convention center connects via skywalk to the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel, with 31,000 square feet of meeting space and Waterside Festival Marketplace. Just blocks away is the Norfolk Scope Arena, offering an additional 85,000 square feet for meetings and exhibits. Throughout the city, another 4,200 rooms are available in bed and breakfasts, boutique hotels, and flagship properties.
Norfolk also offers many unique meeting venues to host your next event. Your group can enjoy a riverboat cruise on the Spirit of Norfolk; a reception or tour at the Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk Botanical Garden, or Nauticus--The National Maritime Center; and a plenary session or concert at The NorVa, a renovated lg20s movie theater.
With more than 200 daily flights from our newly expanded Norfolk International Airport, getting to the New Norfolk has never been easier. Southwest Airlines has recently instituted nonstop service to key destinations. Several meeting hotels are minutes away from the airport. Major interstates make driving to Norfolk easy. And because it lies within driving distance of two thirds of the population of the East Coast, Norfolk is an ideally centralized meeting spot.
Keeping your group entertained is never hard to do in the New Norfolk. Within 10 square blocks is a restaurant and theater district, shopping at Nordstrom, antiquing, harbor cruises, year-round festivals, the Chrysler Museum of Art, Nauticus--The National Maritime Museum and the Battleship Wisconsin. Norfolk offers Southern charm in a peaceful waterfront setting.
In the New Norfolk your event will take center stage.
