Meeting and Conferences
One of the driving forces behind the Virginia Tech Foundation acquiring the Hotel Roanoke was to increase conference space for Virginia Tech events. When the foundation acquired the hotel, the City of Roanoke, through public and private financing, built the adjacent conference center. The conference center has 63,000 square feet of meeting space, and can accommodate multiple functions of all sizes from a small board meeting to the Miss Virginia Pageant. For more information, please see the Hotel Roanoke's Conferences & Meetings page.
The 2010 completion of the Harry S. and Patsy B. Williams Clubhouse at the Pete Dye River Course of Virginia Tech greatly increased the ability for the golf course to not only hold golfing events, but gave Virgnia Tech and the community another place to have meetings, weddings and other social events. The clubhouse overlooks the winding New River, which is a perfect backdrop for all types of events. To learn about what types of events the River Course can accommodate, please go to the River Course's Special Events page.
The foundation owned, Virginia Tech Research Center, located at 900 North Glebe Road in Arlington, VA, offers rentable conference space to accommodate executive seminars, training programs, workshops and many other events.
