THE RICHMOND RACEWAY COMPLEX
The Richmond Raceway Complex at the Richmond International Raceway (RIR) offers
perhaps the most unique and versatile special-event venue in Richmond. Only 10 minutes
from downtown, the facility has more than 150,000 square feet of exhibition and meeting
space and a 6,000-seat covered amphitheater.
"We really take pride in being a unique venue," said Megan Hazzard, senior manager of
event sales and service for the Richmond Raceway Complex. "It's not just another hotel ball-
room where you feel like you could be in any city. You're here at Richmond International
Raceway on our 1,100 acres, maybe in the Torque Club where we do a lot of corporate events.
It has a whole wall of windows where you overlook the racetrack. Even if you're not a race
fan, you'll like the uniqueness of it."
RIR offers other activities and spaces for corporate events. The Corporate Hospitality Pavil-
ion is an indoor, climate-controlled area that can accommodate up to 1,500 guests. If visiting
during a race, special activities can include the use of luxury suites.
