The Greater Richmond Convention Center is the largest exhibition and meeting facility in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The GRCC — an impressive 700,000-square-foot, multi-purpose complex centrally located in Virginia’s capital — is one of the most desirable destinations in the Mid-Atlantic region.
The GRCC is situated within a 500-mile radius of more than half of the U. S. population. The Richmond region is considered a drive-to market along Interstate 95 but also is easily accessible by bus, rail and the Richmond International Airport, which is a 10-minute drive from downtown.
With 178,158 square feet of contiguous exhibit space, a 30,550 square-foot Grand Ballroom and 50,000 square feet of additional meeting/banquet space, the GRCC is well-positioned to host a variety of events from small meetings to large trade shows and conventions.
The convention center’s 411-space parking deck is attached to the facility. There are 10,039 parking spaces available within a six-block radius of the GRCC.
Two full-service hotels — the 400-room Richmond Marriott and the 249-room Hilton Richmond Downtown — are located directly adjacent to the GRCC. A variety of three- to five-star accommodations, combining for 3,600 rooms, also are located within a mile, and 18,000 rooms are available throughout the region.
An extraordinary building in a beautiful city, the Greater Richmond Convention Center offers event planners unprecedented flexibility and affordability to create a unique event experience.

Greater Richmond Convention Center Authority
The Greater Richmond Convention Center was built as a result of regional cooperation between the City of Richmond and the surrounding counties of Henrico, Chesterfield and Hanover by their participation in the incorporation of the Greater Richmond Convention Center Authority. GRCCA, a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia, was created by these local governmental jurisdictions to acquire, finance, expand, renovate, construct, lease, operate and maintain the GRCC.
GRCCA is governed by a five-member commission made up of the chief administrative officer of each of the four incorporating political subdivisions and the president of the InUnison.
