Has a great food court! So many choices and not the usual pre-fab food. The prices were reasonable for a convention center.

I have been to a lot of convention centers and this place is tops. It is huge!!! There is an awesome food court and restaurants all around it. You can even buy souveniers there. We had almost 4000 people and did not make a dent in the size of this place. If you are looking for a convention center this... More

I would not normally rate a convention center, but the staff there just screams for a shout out! We spent 2 days at the facility and did not, one time, encounter a staff person with an attitude. They were friendly, helpful and engaging. We could approach them at any time with a question or comment and never met one without... More

This is a very impressive building attached to the Hilton hotel which has local art displayed on its walls and is an impressive building itself. Both buildings are in walking distance of North Market. The centre is a modern building but not beautiful with its jagged edges. It is impressive however.

This place is huge! If you are going to a convention here, wear comfortable shoes. The ballrooms are quite large and there are various sized meeting rooms. It's modern and there are renovations planned soon to make it even better.(or so I have been told)

I attended the Greater Columbus Auto Show with my wife and really enjoyed ourselves looking at the new vehicles coming out and getting ideas for another vehicle in the future.

Great place for competitions and conventions. We come here several times a year for Cheerleading comps. Food is nearby, although expensive for what you get. Better off going across the street to the North market for your food. Very nice facility though.

The Columbus convention center is a capacious multi room convention location conveniently located in downtown Columbus. It's built with avant garde architecture and interior design which had interior room railings and paneling is half of the room (ballroom 3) at a slight angle giving the impression that the room is crooked. I didn't love that.

I've been here different times. One of the most famous things that occurs here is the Arnold Classic.

I come here every year for Ohayocon in the winter and Matsuricon in the summer. I love it here. The place is HUGE. The cons are always organized so well and they keep that place running like a well oiled machine. I never see overflowing trash cans, garbage on the floor, dirty carpet, etc. I'm especially impressed by the bathroom... More
