Exceptional service and facility! The EBC team went above and beyond throughout our program and were always willing to support us. The facility is amazing and really is an experience all on its own. I could not be more pleased with both the facility and the service we received. Highly recommended!
Mallory Tuttle (Virginia Tech)
My organization, The Plan Sponsor University, has held our educational TPSU Program at the Virginia Tech Executive Briefing Center in Arlington 2-3 times per year since 2014, having our last in-person Program in February 2020, just a few weeks before most University campuses were closed due to the pandemic. We usually use the tired classroom, Ballston Room, on the second floor which works perfectly, and smaller rooms for our small group discussions. The staff at the Executive Briefing Center is very friendly and professional and makes working with them an easy task. I look forward to working with them again as soon as it is safe to hold in-person meetings again.
Isabella Wagner (TPSU)
It is always a pleasure to schedule a meeting at the VTEBC! I KNOW that the service will be uniformly responsive and excellent. Lovely, lovely venue; great catering options; superior staff; super location -- what's not to love!
Laurie Good (Virginia Tech)
Outstanding service. The modern clean facilities were perfect for our event and we love the location. Everyone in the group said the venue was fantastic. We really appreciate that you do not require catering which makes your venue affordable for us a non-profit. We hope to see you soon!
Doug Anderson (Red Cross)
The VT Executive Briefing Center provides an ideal venue for a hybrid conference experience--a professional, comfortable meeting space equipped with seamless videoconferencing technology and a top-notch support staff ready to assist at every turn. The location made for an outstanding return to in-person academic gatherings in a way that easily included our colleagues around the world who participated remotely. We look forward to returning next year!
Barbara Lockee (Virginia Tech)
The staff were extremely responsive, detail-oriented, knowledgeable, and great to work with. They made multiple adjustments to the original agreement based on our requests.
Bao Lee (APLU)
I've rated everything a 10, but while everything was very good, the people are exceptional. I need to give them an 11! … Again, the people were fantastic. Many things happened without my direct involvement (catering came, food was set out, and then cleaned up!!!), which is such a relief during an event. This was our first event at EBC but will not be our last.
Dennis Grove (CPES, Virginia Tech)
From pre-planning to finish, the Virginia Tech team provided exceptional service and went above and beyond our expectations in delivering a seamless experience in helping us to plan our event, no matter how many changes we had each day.
