The 13th Annual CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT BENCHMARKING GROUP CONFERENCE

Discover early American history with a tour of the nearby plantations or a stroll down Monument Avenue. When it comes to culture, Richmond offers numerous museums, art galleries, eclectic shopping districts and fine dining. Thrill seekers will enjoy nearby theme parks.

The Richmond area boasts more than 400 years of history including the second successful English settlement, the site of Patrick Henry's famous "Give me liberty or give me death" speech and the White House of the Confederacy.  More than 5 million annual visitors have discovered why the Richmond Region is easy to love.

The Region is one of the top five Best Places to Live and Work in America according to BestJobsUSA.com.  Richmond is the only U.S. capital city with bald eagles nesting within the city limits.  The Hollywood Cemetery is the final resting place of former U.S. presidents John Tyler and James Monroe.  Pocahontas lived here, Edgar Allan Poe wrote here and Arthur Ashe Jr. learned to play tennis here.
