Room Blocks Are Open!

Once again, HEAV has reserved a variety of room blocks at local hotels to meet your needs! We’ve negotiated to give you the best rates, but don’t wait too long to reserve your room; the blocks do fill up very quickly.

Some of the downtown hotels are within walking distance of the Convention. The others require a short drive, but offer great amenities. Please be sure to verify the location of the hotel before booking as the hotels are not listed in relation to the Greater Richmond Convention Center.
