This facility is extremely large and can handle numerous different events at one time. It is currently undergoing renovations that I assume will make it that much better. It is linked to the Hyatt Regency Columbus making that hotel a convenient location to stay at if attending an event. I found the speakers at the seminar to be a little... More

I was here for a weekend to attend an event and multiple aspects of the convention center impressed me. For starters, there were ample on-site food options and the North Market was just a stone's throw away. In addition, the convention center itself is huge and easily supported the multiple events that were occurring simultaneously. It's just a convention center... More

Spending 8 days in a convention center is not the most stimulating environment, but Columbus has provided one of the most comfortable and easy to navigate centers I have been to in years. The staff were friendly and offered assistance.

First, most likely you don't really have a choice when going to a place like this. You're either in a show, want to see a show, that is in this location. It's not like you're picking a hotel to stay at. I was here as an exhibitor for a show. There was a lot of construction going on when I... More

It's under construction so it's a bit confusing going from the Hyatt to the Convention Center during Matsuricon 2016. They need to have larger signs, hopefully, will happen in the near future. Nice temperature. Good parking access.

Nice building, restrooms were kept clean during the conference. Directional signs are poorly done. Appears in the middle of construction still!!!! Nice selection of food vendors at reasonable rates.

The convention centre is currently being expanded, so there was construction going on, however this did not disturb our conference. The areas are well signposted, and there are plenty of clean amenities. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is situated in the heart of Columbus, and there are plenty of restaurants and hotels nearby to choose from. We... More
