- If you are traveling overnight, rooms have been reserved at the Hilton Richmond Downtown. You will need to make your reservations by April 18th, after that the VIVA block will be released. Please see the Collections Forum information page for detailed booking instructions and VIVA pre-approval paperwork.
- As a reminder VIVA travel guidelines state that VIVA can only reimburse overnight stays for those coming from more than 2 ½ hours away. You are welcome to avail yourself of the group rate however, regardless of travel distance. If not covered by VIVA travel we recommend checking with your local institution to see if they will reimburse an overnight stay.
- Don’t forget, mark your lunch choices on the registration survey! This will determine the number of lunches provided, and will help us to accommodate anyone with dietary restrictions.
- If you have any travel related questions, please contact Cutrice Harris, VIVA Budget Manager.
