We popped in here just to see the art exhibit As We Are and have our pictures be added to the exhibit. The place was pretty much deserted. We didn't see anyone working, but another family stopped in for the exhibit as well. It worked although we never received the promised emails. Definitely worth a stop if you're visiting Short North.

The place is a monster! Parking is around but it’s sort of clustered. The actual convention center has a parking garage as well. Traffic seemed to move well around building during Arnold event as well. Inside had quite a few food places, WiFi, lots of lounges. I will add anyone and their brother can just walk in off the streets. There was some homeless dude asking people for money when we were there. So if you do have a permit to carry! Rock it!

We attended the COA Midwest Nationals Cheer competition here. Their website is great and offers the option to pre-purchase your parking ticket in four different garages. This is a huge advantage for this type of event. Some times your performance time isn’t til later in the day and parking can be a nightmare. Having the option to prepay and hold our parking spot took a lot of stress of of us for the weekend. The center itself is very nice. There is plenty of signage and employees around to help you locate places/things. Everything was clean and well stocked. The food/drink options were top notch. Attending these type of cheer events can be a little crazy and you never know what you are heading bro with each new venue but this is definitely one of the top spots for this year!

This place is massive. Parking is a problem because so many events are booked at the same time. We were there for a dance competition and at the same time there was a tattoo convention. This was quite a difference in dress, manners and typed of people to be placed near each other. The dance competition had mainly little girls. The tattoo people looked very strange. Food in the conference center is limited and expensive. There are very few maps to tell people where the different areas are in the center.

I attended a conference (headquartered in the Hyatt) and trade show in the Convention Center this month. The location is great. Easily accessible from the airport by public transportation or other services. There are many hotels and restaurants within walking distance. Best of all is the beautiful convention center.

I attended a 3-day convention here. It was probably not considered a large event as this venue can host a very large convention in its spaces. Signage was a bit thin to me on the first day, trying to orient myself and find the meeting rooms and marketplace, but I did manage. The staff who helped me were apparently part of this particular convention, not convention center staff, but I eventually found the right meeting room and figured out how to navigate back to the hotel. By the second day, I noticed the signage on the ceiling that pointed my way, so that tells you why I thought signage was missing. There were a couple of decent sandwich and coffee kiosks inside the convention center, but there were also plenty of eating spots just outside the event, on the street. Easy walk to all sorts of places for a quick lunch, including back to the hotel dining spot. There were interesting art installations here and there, especially at the north entrance, and I liked that I could walk via an enclosed overpass back to my hotel if weather was bad. If this same convention is held here next year, I will likely return.

Was here for a conference. Kudos for maintaining a HUGE facility, and using electronic signs to make finding the right conference room easy... And it's easy to get all your steps in before noon, because it's HUGE. Bring comfortable walking shoes, if you can't skate. /grin.

I went to the Columbus, Ohio show with my family. My son loved it, as an adult it was ok. I loved dinosaurs as a kid and would have really liked this if they had it back then.

I appreciate the Columbus Convention Center hosting it.

Visited for the ASAE tradeshow and the staff could not have been any friendlier. Super easy to get around the convention center and the location in the middle of the city was incredible. A lot of dining/entertainment options for our tradeshow attendees.
