Our unique meeting spaces range from facilities at Monticello, the historic homesite of Thomas Jefferson, to contemporary elegance at downtown hotels, from the multimedia-ready John Paul Jones Arena on the UVA campus, to luxury resorts that combine upscale accommodations, golf and spa facilities with up to 22,000 square feet of meeting space on more than 500 acres of grounds.

When the day is done, Charlottesville nightlife welcomes your attendees and associates with some of the best dining, breweries and entertainment on the East Coast, conveniently concentrated in a line stretching from the University of Virginia, along West Main and into the Downtown Mall. Just outside the city, Albemarle County offers historic sites, vineyards, and orchards within a 15-20 minute drive, making it easy to incorporate group tours and weekend activities into your event schedule.
