Columbus, an open and inclusive city, is fueled by innovative ideas and relentless optimism. Conference attendees have even told us their experience was enhanced by the city’s contagious air of positivity. It’s the kind of place where ideas happen and stuff gets done. As a modern and metropolitan city, there's plenty to do and see – and the convention center and hotels are right in the middle of it all. Depending on which door you exit, you'll walk into Downtown Columbus, the Arena District, or the Short North Arts District - where you'll find renowned restaurants, three professional sports venues, gorgeous riverfront parks, art galleries, theaters, boutique shopping, and hundreds of unique small businesses.
