A Few Highlights about our Auto Glass Week™ 2023 Host City!

Why Virginia Beach?

This year’s Auto Glass Week™ is coming in less than eight short months and, as always, show planners put painstaking effort into selecting the best city for the industry’s premier, worldwide event.

Scale and Growth

For starters, the Virginia Beach area is among the largest in the nation’s metros. It comes in at 37th on the list, but is on the upswing as the 20th largest metro area gaining population in the country. With people flocking to the region and plenty of sun, the Virginia Beach/Norfolk metro represents a prime opportunity not only for enterprise and more glass to be installed but also for attractions, such as Virginia’s largest and most award-winning beaches.

Attractions Abound

Home to Virginia’s largest beachfront, Virginia Beach is a prime event destination. On top of its shoreline, the area is home to a water park (https://www.oceanbreezewaterpark.com/), aquarium (https://www.virginiaaquarium.com/), and is a short drive to Busch Gardens (https://buschgardens.com/williamsburg/) and some of the nation’s most important historical experiences. Breweries abound, nightlife is plenty, and everything you’d want to make it not only a visit trip but a family excursion as well.


It’s been a long time since the show was in the mid-Atlantic, and with growth and proximity top-of-mind, this resort city was the perfect fit.

The area is within a few-hours’ drive from some of the nation’s busiest metros, including: New York City, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Raleigh, Charlotte, Charleston and Richmond, Va., among others. For those outside of driving range or who prefer to fly, the Norfolk Airport is an excellent transit option with direct flights from the nation’s premier airline hubs and even acting as a hub of its own for recently launched Breeze Airways—an affordable-yet-comfortable airline that offers attendees direct flights from 13 accessible airports.

With all the benefits of a centrally located show in a premier destination, it’s never been a more perfect time to plan your trip to Auto Glass Week™. Visit www.autoglassweek.com to receive updates and sign up as soon as registration opens to secure the best discounts!
