The best conference venue ever - An Eventective User from Columbus, OH

Our conference for 250 staff across the state went off without a hitch. The participants enjoyed the location more than any other venue we've held our conference at in the past. The staff were extremely helpful and communicative and I would highly recommend this location for others in the future.
