Member Benefits

 

Members enjoy unprecedented contact with other member businesses, so they can market locally to hotels, restaurants, attractions, sports teams, retail and others in the hospitality industry in Central Ohio. And with exclusive access to meeting planners who are bringing their groups to Columbus, members can market their services to meeting attendees.
