Safe Meetings

While the Hampton Roads Convention Center (HRCC) is currently closed for events, we are preparing for your future meetings and conventions. The timeline for reopening depends on state and local restrictions on public gatherings. When we’re able to welcome events back to the building, we will be fully prepared to do so. We have established enhanced cleaning and social distancing policies and procedures for the safety of attendees, staff and business partners. Please check back for frequent updates.
