Will there be a shuttle from local hotels to the event?
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 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.

Parking is available at the VCU parking decks.

Main Street Parking Deck
801 West Main Street, Richmond, VA 23284

Parking will be available in the Main Street Parking Deck (across from The Altria Theater–can also enter via Cherry Street).  Enter via the attendant gate, and if you see the “lot full” sign explain that you are here for RVAsec and that spaces have been reserved.  Take a ticket–an exit pass will be given to you at registration. Overflow parking is at the Broad St or Cary St parking decks.

Walking To Student Commons from Main Street Parking Deck: If entering from Main Street, walk through the deck and exit out of the Cherry Street side.  Turn right onto Cherry Street & go to the corner/stoplight–the Student Commons is diagonal across this intersection (directly behind The Landmark). Cross the street and enter via the back entrance, then proceed straight past the food court (on right) and take stairs/elevator to 2nd floor, turn right & through double-doors.  If entering through main door of Student Commons, proceed upstairs to registration.

Will talks be recorded/posted?
