Welcome to Columbus Boxes

We're pleased to offer "Welcome to Columbus" boxes in multiple sizes and varying contents for use in recruiting or welcoming your staff to Columbus. Filled with gifts and products from only local businesses, each box is designed to help your recruit or new hire (whether C-suite, midlevel or entry level) experience and explore Columbus.

All Columbus Welcome Boxes will include the Experience Columbus Visitor Guide, Things to Do Guide and other materials based on the recipient’s interests. Please allow 48 hours advance notice for purchase.
