This is an exciting opportunity for the members of the North Carolina Veterans of Foreign Wars. Greensboro is centrally located and the Embassy Suites is an exceptional hotel. It is located near the airport, is close to historical sites in Greensboro and Winston-Salem, and is a short drive to the North Carolina Zoo. Major shopping areas and malls are scattered along I-40 and I-85. The new site is centrally located to most posts and will enable more members to attend our meetings and convention. The addition of a free hot made-to-order breakfast and an evening Manager’s Reception add to your event experience and help reduce your event cost.
Why not take a look at the hotel and its glass elevators and atrium through the eyes of wonder, that of a child.
