The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center, Curio Collection by Hilton
A Tudor-style property built in 1882, the Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center in Roanoke, Virginia is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. But don’t let that historical pedigree fool you—the property offers a high-tech conference center with the latest technology to support in-person and hybrid meetings. In fact, the property just invested $450,000 in renovations, infrastructure, and equipment to support innovative meetings and events.

Value of In Person Meetings
A conference is about more than the delivery of content from a presenter or a structured discussion among participants. For the One Team, our objective is to help planners create inspiring meeting experiences that foster collaboration and innovative problem solving.
And like on-campus learning, we know the interactions that take place outside the meeting room -- on a morning hike, a wonderful, shared meal and an exhilarating team event -- can be as valuable as any part of the conference. Being together has never been more important and appreciated.
Meetings and events play a critical role in bringing teams back together in-person and charting a course for the future. Our creative meeting space sets help optimize healthy and hygienic practices, while providing a setting that stimulates collaboration and innovation.
Delivering event experiences that provide peace of mind from start to finish, our experiences offer meetings that are clean, flexible, safe & socially responsible. Our facilities provide curated solutions for every step of your planning process, from redesigned event spaces and innovative technology resources to inspiring food & beverage with thoughtful presentations.
High Quality Hybrid Meeting
The One Team recognizes that hybrid meetings, where some participants are on site and others are connecting virtually from around the country or the world, are part of our modern meeting environment. As such, we’re committed to making these meetings a success.
Investments in state-of-the-art technology and equipment guarantee your attendees hear every word, regardless of location. And these spaces are managed by our team of audio-visual experts who are able to assist you if any issues arise. This pairing of technology and expertise will ensure your meeting is perfect.
