“Great building, great space, food is so-so...”

Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center
Reviewed August 22, 2012

The food could be better, though. I've been to several catered events at this convention center, and I haven't been too pleased with the in-house catering here. Otherwise, it is a great place for any kind of reception, trade show, or beer festival (my favorite) that you can imagine. I love the architecture of this building. I do NOT love the food, and I wish they would let outside caterers in.

My husband and I recently traveled to Columbia, South Carolina. Our hotel was about 2 blocks from the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. I visited their visitor information center twice and both times the people working there were extremely helpful and polite, offering all sorts of suggestions and information.

I have visited this location 2 years in a row. It is one of the nicer convention centers. It is very good for a large conference of 500+ guests. I would assume that it would be good for smaller but I have only attended in a large group setting.

This was our third conference at the convention center. It is in a revitalized area of downtown Columbia in easy walking distance to two hotels and several restaurants. The convention center, itself, is very clean, modern, and easy to navigate. Even with 1500+ conference attendees the free conference center wi-fi worked flawlessly.
