Welcome Virginia REALTORS®


About Richmond

What’s not to love about Virginia’s capital? Richmond is a fun and vibrant city with a booming food scene, stunning walking trails, and history on every street corner. Virginia REALTORS® is thrilled to host our Onward: 2022 Virginia REALTORS® Annual Convention here and cannot wait for you to explore this dynamic location when taking a break from the action-packed convention lineup. Please note that vendor information listed below is subject to change. Check back for updates as they come in to us.



The Richmond Marriott is our host hotel for Onward. This will be the main location for events taking place during our annual convention. It also happens to be a great hotel with many amenities.

If the lovely Richmond Marriott fills up, have no fear! The preferred alternative hotel is just across the street. The Hilton Richmond Downtown is a convenient option that has you so close to the heart of the action.

If neither of those options work out for one reason or another, we’ve found the closest 10 hotels to the Richmond Marriott and listed them in order of distance from our convention. So, whether you’re looking for a little historical charm or are interested in something a bit funky and non-traditional, Richmond’s hotel scene has you covered.
