US Sports Congress Heads to Richmond for 2022

Mar 07, 2022

It's a new year with new opportunities and for the US Sports Congress a new destination. In case you have not heard, the US Sports Congress will be hosted by Richmond Region Tourism. While their destination is steeped in history there is something new at every turn. We can talk about their new facilities being built, or the development in any one of their seven jurisdictions or what about the smashing success of the first annual RVA Sports Awards - MC'd by Tiki Barber.

With the assistance from our partners at Richmond Region Tourism we're putting together a program that is squarely focused on the future while embracing their historic past. You'll find this in our outings too. From a history tour to exploring their microbrewery scene there is something for everyone. You'll also see the launch of the new Collegiate Championship Symposium designed for academic institutions and athletic conferences. A new destination to explore and 3 conferences with fresh new content, this will undoubtedly be our largest event and something you don't want to miss!

More news about the US Sports Congress follows including more information about the opening of registration, sponsorship opportunities and  sponsor spotlights and news about the Economic Development & Sports Tourism Summit.
