Went there to watch my 12 year old granddaughter and her team play in a volleyball tournament. Her team came in 5th place out of over 100 teams!! The Convention Center is a fantastic place! You could never go hungry there!

Well planned out, food options always readily available. Huge venues, never feel crowded, and they are constantly upgrading. Been to multiple events here, always been a good time.

I went here for the Arnold sports expo. If you are in town, stop by, there is a great Arnold statue in front (and plus, there's not much else to see in Columbus). This place has places to eat and coffee places. If you're staying...More
