Happy Friday!

First, we’re happy to share that after a nationwide competitive process, Bryan Miller has been selected for the Convention Center General Manager position. Bryan comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience in facilities management, most of which comes from serving as the Convention Center's Assistant Manager for Sales and Service and Assistant Manager for Business.

During this time of continued uncertainty, there is some encouraging news to share. Two economic relief programs were recently announced. Details about the programs were posted earlier this week on the CVB’s Partner Pipeline portal and on our industry blog.

  • Rebuild! VA, a grant initiative developed by Governor Northam’s office, has expanded to include more qualifying small businesses and nonprofits impacted by Covid-19. More information and applications may be found here.
  •, a local initiative launched this week by the City of Virginia Beach, has a support component for small businesses specifically located in Virginia Beach. To find out more, visit

In closing, thanks to all who attended the Advertising Advisory Committee yesterday. Here is the link to the presentation.

We will resume the weekly update the week of 11/30.

Happy Thanksgiving to all & have a great weekend!


Have a great weekend, 

Bill Hanbury, CVB Executive Advisor
