Cocktails And Coffee VIP Tour

More Is Possible In Columbus

See for yourself in an easy 24-hour VIP trip.

Columbus has everything you need (and more!) for a memorable convention. Let us treat you to cocktails and coffee in Columbus while you see all the unique assets this diverse and inclusive city has to offer your event in a complimentary, 24-hour VIP trip.

We’ll treat you to craft cocktails when you arrive in the evening, and award-winning, locally brewed coffee before you depart the next day – and in-between, a quick tour of the must-see convention sites. Tell us about your needs and we’ll customize an agenda to show you how easy it’ll be to make magic for your convention in the city where more is possible.


Sample agenda:

  • We book your flights and hotel – so you can relax and take in the views.
  • You’ll arrive in the afternoon with time to experience an unforgettable dinner and craft cocktails in one of Food & Wine’s favorite cities.
  • We’ll hit the town in the vibrant and welcoming neighborhoods near our convention center.
  • In the morning, you’ll enjoy the Midwest’s best coffee scene.
  • We’ll show you around your must-see meeting sites.
  • We’ll treat you to a unique experience tailored to your interests before you fly out.

We’ll do the planning. You’ll get familiar with an authentically remarkable city. And we’ll have you on your flight home before you can say “I love it here!”
