CCI Symposium 2023 Lodging and Travel

The Commonwealth Cyber Initiative is hosting its second annual CCI Symposium April 17 to 18, 2023, in Richmond, Virginia, at the Omni Richmond Hotel.

CCI has reserved a block of rooms for those attending the invitation-only event at the hotel for the evening of April 17. The price will be $145 for single rooms, $155 for doubles.  

You’ll need to contact the Omni to book your room, and you’ll be asked to put a credit card on file with the hotel. 

The deadline to reserve a room within the CCI block is March 17, 2023, by 5 p.m. ET.

Rooms and suites in the CCI block that are not reserved by the deadline will be released for general sale. Reservation requests received afterward will be accepted based on guest room availability at prevailing rates, as the group rate might no longer be available.

Arriving and Departing

The hotel address is 100 South 12th St., Richmond, Va. 23219. Check-in time is 3 p.m.; check-out is noon. 

Guests arriving before 3 p.m. will be accommodated as rooms become available.

Omni guest service staff can arrange to check baggage for those arriving early when rooms are unavailable and for guests attending functions on departure day.

Payment Resource Suggestions

Because this is a research-focused event, PIs and Co-PIs might pull from their travel funds within their grants for themselves and their students.
