Accessible and affordable with big-city amenities and a small town feel, Columbia is the ideal place for small to mid-size events. The mix of hotels provide lots of options, and with three interstates that intersect the city and a regional airport, getting here is straightforward. Its characteristic Southern charm (and food!) makes event attendees feel right at home and with so much to see and do, your guests can look forward exploring this capital city with a college town vibe beyond the main event. Plentiful accommodations, walkability and overall manageability make for logistics that are as friendly as the people.

Shaking up the traditional scene, Columbia's natural beauty and historical significance serve as a rich backdrop for a city bursting with growth, creativity and the excitement of what's to come. With evidence of renewal everywhere, Columbia is the real Southern hot spot that will leave you looking forward to what's next.
