Elevate Your Event

LEED-Certified Event Venue

Top 4 Steps to Choosing the Best Meeting Venue

Situated among 300 acres of pristine gardens and natural wetlands, Richmond Hill City Center is the ideal destination for business meetings, retreats, conferences, and celebrations large and small.

We have the team and the space to make your event truly special. We take time to get to know you and your event’s needs and customize each experience to ensure a successful event.

What makes the right venue for you? We keep it simple with these 4 steps to choosing the best meeting venue. The secret? High-quality care.

Step 1: Prioritize Accessibility

Accessibility is a highly important factor to consider when selecting a meeting venue. Mindful Meeting Pros explains that accessibility is essential for all attendees, regardless of mobility needs.

One-fifth of our population requires ADA accessibility. And who doesn’t prefer a larger restroom, amenities that are more reachable, or activated doors you don’t have to heave open with both hands?

Our meeting rooms at Richmond Hill City Center are spacious and accommodating. Easy slide panels can separate areas for breakouts and mini-sessions.

Choosing a meeting venue with built-in accessibility is a crucial step in creating an inclusive and successful event. By considering the venue’s proximity to transportation options and assessing its accessibility features, you can ensure that all attendees can fully participate.

Step 2: Be More Sustainable

Choosing a sustainable meeting venue – like the LEED-certified City Center, reinforces your company’s values toward a cleaner, brighter future.

Sustainability is a matter of relevance. Being mindful of the stewardship of our resources in all the ways we plan events is good for business, according to Forbes: “Being green earns more green. Sustainability-focused companies have better financial results relative to their peers ... Sustainability has proven to be essential, not a luxury, and investors are doubling down on sustainability investments.”

As Bryan County’s first LEED building, we are dedicated to energy and resource efficiencies:

  • Enjoy open rooms with dividers, natural sunlight, and shades and light dimmers; plus covered patios and outdoor spaces;
  • LED lighting throughout meeting room areas saves on energy;
  • Onsite herb garden is tended by chef and staff, reducing buying and transportation costs;
  • Foods are sourced locally as much as possible.

Step 3: Are Hotels Nearby?

The City of Richmond Hill, a neighbor of Savannah, has your hotel accommodations. When attendees have hotels within walking distance or a short commute from the conference venue, it eliminates the stress and hassle of transportation. Did you know? Many of our area hotels participate in the Trolley to Savannah transportation.

Step 4: Keep Your Budget Intact

Your choice of venue plays a significant role in determining the overall cost of your event. Let’s negotiate to make Richmond Hill City Center your ideal venue. Perhaps you don’t need the larger meeting space, or breakout room. It all depends. View our venue capacity areas.

Our Great Ogeechee Ballroom can accommodate up to 400 guests, while our Executive Board Room provides superior space for a group of 10. We do not layer our proposals with built-in amenities that you must absorb. This is about your dream event, and we are here to keep you on budget with a realistic approach.

Southern hospitality is in our DNA. Richmond Hill City Center is a cherished special event location on the Georgia coast – with a cast of businesses who come year over year. Your event deserves the elegance we can provide. The Richmond Hill City Center team is here to ensure your meeting and special event is seamless. Your guests are our guests. Contact us today.
