Gymnasts, Brides and Collectors to Pack the Virginia Beach Convention Center This Weekend

Thursday, February 16, 2012

The Virginia Beach Convention Center is packing the house this weekend.  Four events – the Excalibur Cup Gymnastics Competition, the VOW Bridal Event, the Southeast Guns and Knives Show and the Tidewater Coin Show – are projected to bring in nearly 6,000 attendees to the resort area and generate more than 2,000 hotel room nights.  These events strengthen the Virginia Beach economy by generating revenue to resort businesses in months that are typically slow.
