"The Prizery's Gallery Lobby was the perfect place for us to host our client appreciation event prior to enjoying a great show. The space was elegant yet comfortable, and the staff attended to our every need."

"Due to the different types of events the chamber offers, we need a variety of different meeting spaces with different amenities. The meeting accommodations at the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center are a great resource. We have used the Hope/Smith classroom for more interactive meetings. We have used the auditorium in the Innovation Center for more formal presentations. Whatever need arises, the SVHEC is able to accommodate it."
Nancy Pool
President, Halifax County Chamber of Commerce
