I'm sure it will be beautiful when it is finished, but you have to walk further to get where you want to go now. The ballroom upstairs seems only half as big as the ballroom close to the trade show area. The escalators weren't always going in the direction the crowd needed. Plan to give it a year and then...

I really enjoyed my conference at the Convention Center. The area was clean and nice, and the rooms were well-equipped. There were places to get snacks, and staff to help direct you to various rooms and areas. It is VERY spread-out, and I got lots of steps in during the convention! Plan to walk. Also, the Hyatt, Hilton, and Crowne... More

The center did a very nice job of making sure that the conference rooms were climate controlled and internet accessibility was available for everyone. The provision and organization of food and beverages was well organized and appropriate. Restroom facilities were very clean and easily located. The only improvement I could make would be to have directions and locations of current... More

The place seems to go on and on and seems to be long and narrow. Never could find a layout map. Well positioned near a lot of parking that was quite reasonable.

Wear comfortable shoes because this is huge. The center is clean and just a very nice conference facility close to the Nationwide Arena, and the arena district. There are also excellent hotels located next door. The North Market is mainly across the street with several other restaraunt choices so you will have plenty to do after a conference. Just be...

A very nice conference facility close to the Nationwide Arena, the Short North, the arena district, and great hotels. Park your car, go to your conference, and then have plenty to do in the late afternoon and evenings. You have fine dining to grab-a-bit choices. The Convention Center is an excellent venue for small to large conferences!

Very convenient to stay at the Hyatt while attending conferences. Our meeting rooms were all close together and the expo trade show was adjacent to the meeting rooms. Room temperatures were good. The meals that were included with our conference were terrible. Food temperatures were cold. Food was not presented well. Servers were very friendly and helpful. The walleye had... More

The Greater Columbus Convention Center in downtown Columbus stretches from Nationwide to Short North. I have attended may events here and walk within the convention center when it is raining or snowing. There are many good things about the convention center as it is close to everything and is truly in the heart of the Short North. There are so... More
