About the Greater Columbus Convention Center (GCCC)
As one of the busiest convention centers in North America, the GCCC annually hosts more than 2.5 million guests and hundreds of events. Designed by architect Peter Eisenman, the award-winning facility is in the midst of a $125 million dollar expansion and full renovation which will culminate in additional exhibition and meeting space, public art, enhanced public dining areas and technological capabilities, new wall treatments, carpeting and guest amenities. Ideally located in the center of a vibrant entertainment district and within a day’s drive or a one-hour flight of the majority of the nation’s population, the GCCC is about 10 minutes from Port Columbus International Airport and connected to five hotels by enclosed walkway. The 1.7-million-square-foot GCCC offers a linear layout of customizable space, including Battelle Grand, a magnificent 74,000 square feet multipurpose ballroom that is the largest in Ohio and features floor-to-ceiling windows with city views and unique LED “fin” ceiling lighting with thousands of color combinations. Friendly Certified Tourism Ambassadors throughout the facility will provide a warm welcome to attendees and guide them to the plethora of nearby dining, entertainment and transportation options within the Arena District and Short North Arts District just outside the doors.
