Frequently Asked Questions
Read our full FAQs on this page.
Do we book our own rooms?
Yes, please book your room here, at the time you purchase your ticket to ensure you get your room at the host hotel. If you are rooming with another attendee, the front desk will need to know the name of those rooming with you, and the first person checking in will be required to use their credit card to check in. They can divide the cost of the room at check out.
What airport will I fly into?
You will fly into RIC – Richmond International Airport. Free shuttle service is provided to and from the host hotel, Four Points Sheraton, however, you are responsible to call the hotel once you have retrieved your checked in luggage.
Do not call prior to this, or the shuttle will leave if they do not see anyone approaching their shuttle van after a few minutes, as they are contracted to leave their hotel every 20 minutes for airport personnel.
How will I get to the hotel from the airport?
Our host hotel offers FREE shuttle service. Only call them once you have retrieved your checked in luggage from luggage claim. They will meet you outside of that area in their Four Points by Sheraton Richmond Airport shuttle van – (804) 226-4300.
They can only wait a few minutes due to their contract with airport personnel to leave their hotel every 20 minutes, however they won’t automatically come to the arrival area unless called.
