2019 will be a year like no other as Columbus hosts the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) Annual Meeting & Exposition. The annual conference will draw over 5,000 attendees to the Greater Columbus Convention Center Aug. 10–13, 2019. Filling 16,800 hotel rooms and generating over $16 million in direct visitor spending is just the beginning – hosting ASAE amounts to tremendous ROI for Columbus. Historically, 20 percent of the association executives who attend will book a future meeting in the host city within the next five years, representing $500 million in potential future revenue.



During the Annual Meeting, you’ll hear from national industry experts about how this game-changing event will positively impact your business from 2019 and beyond. Network with community leaders and hospitality partners and get an insider’s look at the plans for pulling off the city’s most influential convention ever. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins promptly at noon. Get your seats by Thursday, March 7, 2019.
