We attended a convention in Columbus at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. The center had good acoustics and the staff was helpful.

The staff was nice, the facilities were clean, things ran very smoothly. Those things are VERY important and I appreciate good service more than anything. However, when you are seated for any amount of time, and there is quite literally no elbow room, it gets uncomfortable. I was fortunately with friends, but had I been seated by a stranger and...

For a second year in a row, the venue for the Summer Nationals Fencing Tournament. Ten days of clashing swords, epees, foils and sabers wielded by athletes from 8 to 80. A great venue with a food court offering lots of different snacks, lots of meeting rooms for different venues from large to small and different little shops.

I work in Convention centers all over the country is Columbus is by far the worst. The staff is incredibly difficult, incompetent and rude. Not to mention they steal stuff left and right. The back of house is the dirtiest, nastiest, most unorganized mess I have ever seen anywhere. Do not eat here! It's embarrassing because this is my hometown... More

We were vendors at a convention. Unlike the Indiana Convention Center, GCCC didn't have any problems with its escalators or elevators. The place is big enough for thousands of people, but small enough that you don't feel as if you're exploring a small city or walking miles to get to your hotel. It was also great to have wireless net... More

Went here for the 2014 Origins Game Fair, the Convention Center is easily accessed, there is plenty of on site parking in the attached garage. Very easy layout which includes a full food court that makes your life that much easier during the day. There are plenty of signs showing exactly where you are in the convention center, so getting...

The venue was great for the Quilt Show and had plenty of classrooms all located within walking distance of each other. However to get to the food court you had to go up and escalator, across a long hallway, down an escalator, down a long hallway, up and escalator (you get the idea) probably a half a mile away! They... More

The Ohio State Bar Association's annual convention is held in Columbus at the convention center every 3 years. I always know what to expect and am always happy with the results. Parking is convenient, but not always cheap. Thursday it cost $10 - Friday it was $5. Flat fees both days. No clue why different. The meeting rooms are always... More

This is the best attraction of the year! If you are into health and fitness, working out, or sports, this is a must do! I have gone 16 years in a row and plan on attending every year moving forward. Great weekend to re-motivate your self and learn about the new trends in sports and sports nutrition. As Arnold said...."I'll... More
