I've visited the convention center a few times in the past few years I've been living in Ohio. It is a great location, very spread out, lots of room for multi-conventions to happen at once and overall a great layout even if it is very spread out altogether.

I look forward to seeing the new building when it's done. As it is, there's plenty of places to eat near by, and that's important for convention centers.

Located in the heart of renovated Columbus Downtown in the bustling Arena and Short North Entertainment and dining districts, the Convention Center is the home of a multitude of events year round. Check out their website for a complete schedule.

Nice convention center. Under construction. Once it is finished it will be better. Be prepared to walk a long way.

First time attending an event at the convention center. It is very large with multiple very large room to accommodate hundreds of people plus plenty of smaller breakout rooms. A little far to go from one end to the other, seems to be a lot of dead space.

I visited this place a couple times. The more memorable was in June, 2014 during a computer science conference. The place is very spacious and has huge halls that can accommodate more than 500 people. There are lots of restaurants, bars and clubs nearby.
