The convention is at a great location and a great place for thousands of people to attend be it a concert or business summit without feeling crowded.

This is a very nice conference center. It is big and the people are friendly. I'd come back again to this conference center.

Just wanted to let you know that the Greater Richmond Convention Center did not host the McGraw-Hill concert. That event took place at the Richmond Coliseum. Thank you.

I’ve been here for several events and this last one was with several family members including grandchildren. I found the festival to be well placed in the center, and it was able to accommodate people, comfortably. Well done!
