The Columbia Metropolitan Visitor and Convention and Visitor's Bureau has gone through a lot of growing pains over the past couple of years. They've adopted a new city motto, "Where Friendliness Flows," and has really put an emphasis on the Vista area. Their showpiece and operating location is the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, a facility in the heart of downtown that can accomodate thousands of people. It's right next to the relatively new Colonial Center, where major musicians perform as well as the University of South Carolina basketball teams.

So instead of searching through the site page by page on your own, below there are convenient links to the important information. If you have any questions, here is their contact information:
