The sheer size and central location of the Greater Richmond Convention Center make it one of the most desirable meeting destinations in the Mid-Atlantic region. Situated in the heart of Virginia’s capital city, just minutes from Richmond International Airport, the enormous 700,000-square-foot facility sits on 5 and 1/2 city blocks. Interior accommodations include 178,159 square feet of exhibit space, 32 meeting rooms and the 30,550-square foot Grand Ballroom.
Parking is made easy thanks to adjoining decks that can handle 1,540 vehicles. Nearly 4,600 additional spaces are located within a six-block radius of the site. The Richmond Marriott rests adjacent to the Center while a plethora of 3 to 5 star accommodations are within easy reach.
Nearby attractions include The Diamond, a venue that hosts professional and collegiate baseball; the Virginia State Capitol Building; and the Richmond Coliseum, home to minor league hockey and various concerts.
