Reasons to Meet in Columbus


Everything you need for a successful meeting is in a vibrant, walkable destination: Columbus.


Columbus is an easy, walkable convention destination with hip galleries, shops, dining, nightlife, sports and hotels just steps from the convention center in the Short North Arts District and the Arena District. Other downtown districts – German Village, the Brewery District and the Theatre District – are within 10 blocks or a short CBUS ride.


The Greater Columbus Convention Center has 1.8 million sq. ft., with 373,000 sq. ft. of contiguous exhibit space, 3 ballrooms and 75 meeting rooms. Plus, there are 4,250 hotel rooms downtown and 2,250 rooms connected/adjacent to the convention center.


It’s easy to get to Columbus. John Glenn Columbus International Airport is just 10 minutes from downtown and flies to 37 destinations non-stop. And Columbus is within 550 miles, just a one-days drive or one-hour flight from half of the nation’s population.
