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.

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!
