The Pavilion Convention Center is a very well maintained facility. It is a place for everyone together for conferences, graduations, trade shows, along with consumer shows. This year, they will the annual "Virginia Beach Big Flea Market." If you're a collector of antiques, the Pavilion Convention Center would be a great place to go to from August 26-28. I've been very lucky with finding a couple of things that I fell in love with at the collectible show. There's a fee of $5, but it's worth it.
In the past, I have seen a couple of my siblings graduate from here. It was a pleasant experience. The only thing I would recommend is to be there early to get the best parking spots since there are many students graduating from different schools.
