RVAsec Sold Out – Waiting List, Refunds, Ticket Transfers & Hotel Update!

RVAsec is officially sold out!

We have already had emails coming in from people hoping to get tickets to RVAsec.  While we are pleased that we are sold out, unfortunately we are at capacity at this point.

If you are still interested in attending please add your name to the wait list as soon as possible.

If tickets for some reason become available then you will be notified and provided an opportunity to purchase.  You should have a day from the time you are emailed to purchase, and if you do not, then the next person of the list will be provided the opportunity, and so on it goes.

Please note that you will NOT be able to get a bag/shirt or a hackable badge if any tickets do open up.

In fact, this is a good time to remind that for anyone that registered LATE (it is noted on your ticket) are not guaranteed a bag, shirt or hackable badge.

If for some reason you are not able to attend RVAsec last minute, please note that we can’t provide refunds this late but we might be able help someone else attend (email us!).  It is however possible to transfer your ticket.

Ticket Transfers
Log in to your Eventbrite account and go to My Tickets (you may need to create an account using the email address you registered).

You can then view your Current Orders (select RVAsec), and “Edit details” for the ticket. Changing the “Contact Information” will update the name of the person registered to check in at the conference. You can also change the questions asked at registration, which will help us plan for parking, catering and other items.

No refunds for the conference will be issued after May 10th.

The conference hotel is almost as capacity.  They have told us that they can’t help anyone with room past May 22nd.  If you still need a room you need to contact them ASAP or you will be on your own!

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.

Richmond, Virginia 23220


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.
