VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Virginia Beach business and city leaders gathered for the State of the City address Wednesday afternoon.

The Hampton Roads Chamber is hosting the event, which ran from 12 p.m. until 2 p.m.

Mayor Bobby Dyer talked about what has happened in the city and what the community can expect for the future.

These events, which happen in five cities across Hampton Roads, give business, civic and community leaders time to mingle and interact.

“It is also an opportunity for city Mayors to reflect on the past year while sharing their plan for a successful future," a press release sent out by the Hampton Roads Chamber read. "These forums will provide members of the community with valuable information on community issues that affect local businesses, and insight on what to expect in the next year.”
