When making a decision on where to hold your corporate meeting, there are several factors to consider. Once you have narrowed down the best location based on convenience to the airport and interstates, as well as proximity to attractions such as shopping and restaurants, your next decision should be based on what venue can accommodate the size of your group and of course, cost.
There are several options within the City of Chesapeake as well as surrounding cities to choose from. Many local hotels can accommodate meetings for groups in the range of approximately 20 to 900 attendees offering meals, A/V, and free onsite parking. If meetings are bringing in guests from out of town, a hotel with adequate meeting space is a wise choice, one that is within walking distance to many attractions your guests will enjoy. For a multiple-day meeting event, your guests can take advantage of being close to the meeting space without having to leave the facility.
In Chesapeake, you won’t find a hotel in close proximity to walk-able amenities; however, there is plenty to do just a short drive away. Whether it’s great food with an urban feel or a rural experience, both options are available, making the task of appealing to the masses much more achievable. Once your guests are fed and happy, other activities abound catering to the outdoorsie types to the history buffs, golfers, movie go-ers, fishermen, or even bird watchers. Need to get some shopping done? It’s all close by without all the hustle and bustle of a big city, and with all of the conveniences. In Chesapeake, you’ll have a hard time finding a noisy street or crowds. We are just the right mix of rural meets urban.
If your event needs more space than a hotel can accommodate, or perhaps you would like to eliminate additional pedestrian traffic, then a convention or conference center is your better option. Venues such as the Chesapeake Conference Center offer the space and staff for various sizes and types of events. Configurable spaces can accommodate large banquet setups and additional spaces for break-out sessions with adjoining pre-function space that allows control over the flow of your event as guests come and go, or adhere to specific timelines.
The Chesapeake Conference Center has many hotels on its campus; the closest is the Chesapeake Marriott. It’s the demand of convenience and proximity to a wide variety of accommodations that bring locals and out-of-town guests to the conference center for their events – again appealing to the masses, so that event attendees can stay at their hotel chain of choice. The free and ample on-site parking in the safe Greenbrier corridor is an amenity that cannot go unnoticed. When it comes to conventions, concerts, or trade shows where attendance can reach the thousands, the Chesapeake Conference Center has a capacity of up to 2500, a number that local hotels are unable to accommodate.
So when looking for space to host your next corporate gathering, the Chesapeake Conference Center has a great deal to offer when it comes to convenience, and a variety of options that will ensure all of those who attend are comfortable and happy.
