Virginia Beach is strategically located in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area on the East Coast of North America at the point where the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean meet. It is a 3.5 hour drive from Washington DC and Raleigh NC. It is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having the longest pleasure beach in the world. It is a few miles drive from the Busch Gardens in Williamsburg. The area houses large government and private organizations like the DoD, NASA, Huntington Ingalls, and Norfolk Southern. Two main airports serve the area: Norfolk (ORF) and Newport News (PHF). The Virginia Beach’s light houses symbolize the trust, guidance, strength, leadership, and responsibility that have guided Engineering Managers in thriving in challenging environments. In addition to the technical program, tours to local industries and social gatherings will provide attendees an opportunity to network on many different levels.
