While we enjoyed the expo, it was during a "comic" weekend. The foot traffic was out of control. It was so hot in the convention center that it was uncomfortable.

This inside and set up for this facility are great....the signage, not so much! For a visitor needing to unload and set up for a show, it took forever to figure out where to park, how to get where we needed to go. I understand they are renovating the place, all the more reason to make signage a priority!

Nothing especially good or bad to say about this facility. I have been to many in my career and this one is clean and well run and walking distance to many hotels. The only drawback is that it is not close (walking distance) to a good entertainment district.

I was at the Convention Center for an event last weekend. HUGE facility. This also means huge walks from one end to another. If you are handicapped be prepaired for a more difficult trip from one end of the facility to another. Their are escalators and several elevators....you will need to go up and down to get from one end... More

I attend anime conventions here regularly. Every time I walk through those doors, I say out loud, "I'm home." It's where I feel I belong.

The Greater Columbus Convention Center is a great place to have a meeting or event. Columbus is a very visitor friendly city with lots of entertainment and restaurants and options for you or your company. I have worked in and with this venue many times and I must say its a great place to meet

the convention center itself was undergoing some renovations while we were in town, but, we have been there in the past and have enjoyed the events that were presented...easy to get to, parking is plentiful, or you could park at a park and ride, and take the bus...

Thank sloppyjoepal
