Hotel Update

As we mentioned previously, RVAsec continuously looks for ways to improve the conference and this year we decided to move the official conference hotel.  We picked a place called The Graduate, which is scheduled to be a brand new hotel closer to the conference location.

Well, due to some unforeseen issues, they will not be open in time for RVAsec, and we have had to make some last minute changes!

The official conference for RVAsec 2017 is now the Quick Hotel.

We have moved all existing reservations over and were able to honor the initial price.  We only have a few rooms remaining as part of the block at the Quirk Hotel for out of town guests or anyone that would prefer to stay downtown. The rate is $179/night (which does NOT include parking).

You can either book online or call the hotel.

The Quirk hotel does NOT have a shuttle to the event.  It is about a 5 minute taxi/Uber ride or 15 minute walk to the conference.  Several other hotels in the area such as Crowne Plaza have a shuttle which may be used in the morning and evening for transportation to the conference. Please confirm when making your reservations and note that you must coordinate directly with the hotel for transportation.

If for any reason you are unable to get the RVAsec rate or the block of rooms has been filled, please let us know and we can try to assist.

Make sure you check out information on getting to the conference.
