Promoter’s Guide

Chesapeake Conference Center is a premier entertainment venue centrally located nestled in the heart of the coastal Virginia area just 30 minutes from Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Newport News, and Hampton. Williamsburg is an hour outside of Chesapeake and Richmond is a little over an hour away. 

The Center opened its doors in September of 1997 and was the first freestanding conference and meeting center in Hampton Roads!  Ever evolving with the guest experience in mind, February 2014 brought a change of management to the Center, as VenuWorks of Chesapeake, LLC took over operations. 

For 26 years, the Center has dazzled guests and residents of Hampton Roads with a variety of entertainment, concerts, shows, conventions, expos, meetings, banquets, and other social events. With 39,000 feet of flexible space and spacious 20 foot ceilings, the Chesapeake Conference Center welcomes all types of functions.

Our column free 20,000 square-foot ballroom serves as a multi-purpose event space and is unique in its own right with beautiful surrounding promenade spaces and a 2,700 square-foot adjacent Chesapeake room. These spaces  offer several options for configuring your event flow and setup, whether for pre-function, check-ins, VIP rooms, green rooms, dressing rooms, or receptions.
