Hotel Information:

The Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront hotel is the annual host for our conference.  Due to the time of year, size of the conference and popularity of the location, the block of VAPA rooms sells out quickly and staff cannot add or guarantee rooms.  You can make your reservations today by calling 757-213-3000 or clicking the online reservations link HERE.  Rooms start at $219 per night for City View rooms and range up to $334 per night for ocean view.  Taxes and parking are not included.

Explore All that Virginia Beach Has to Offer! 

Walk outside of the host hotel and you are just steps away from the boardwalk and all that Virginia Beach has to offer.  Take a selfie with King Neptune, visit the Old Coast Guard Station, jump on a boat and ride beside dolphins on a Rudee Tour, cool off in the giant wave pool at Ocean Breeze Waterpark, or zip through the trees at the new Adventure Park at the Virginia Aquarium.  There are hundreds of family-friendly adventures to be found as well as hundreds of amazing restaurants that are sure to please everyone.  Find out more about what to do while you're at the beach, go to and start planning now!
