Our Lions gathering was host at the Convention Center. This place has been recently remodeled. There are several hotels and eateries either connected or very close. The meeting spaces were easy to find and large enough for our meetings. Sound system worked well.

The venue is very well maintained with plenty of coffee facilities and modern conferencing. Our only complaint was that the place was freezing cold in some rooms, so you need to take a sweater.

The center was so convenient since our hotel was connected to it. Easy to get around to the different halls and easy to find them. Plenty of room to get around.

Columbus is fortunate to have such a wonderful venue for large conventions and events. The convention center is well maintained, easy to access and easy to navigate once inside. Connected to many other venues, so in inclement weather, enjoying downtown Columbus is a breeze!
