Functionality Meets Style at The Greater Columbus Convention Center - An Eventective User from Columbus, Ohio

I recently had the privilege of experiencing the Ohio Housing Conference at The Greater Columbus Convention Center. The convention center was beautifully equipped to host the event with thousands of participants. They had information and check-in booths clearly posted at many locations. There were lots of restrooms and they were kept clean and well stocked the entire time we were there for the 4 day conference. The lunches were planned out perfectly, with tables being set up and stocked to feed hundreds of people at multiple locations. The audio visual materials in each room worked very well. There were large screens and great microphones that helped to enhance the programs. They also had great little gadgets that you could use to select a multiple choice answer and they helped to make the experience more interactive. Any minor technical difficulties were always handled immediately by staff that were there waiting. Overall, it was a great place to host a conference.
