Columbus, Georgia

This “Cool Cat City” is attracting groups thanks to its unconventional venues, outdoor activities and growing accessibility.

One-of-a-kind meeting venues, outstanding cultural attractions, plus zip lining and whitewater rafting in its uptown core; there are many reasons Forbes dubbed Columbus, Ga., “Georgia’s Cool Cat City.”

In this Vision Video, the sales team from VisitColumbusGA share some of the many highlights that have helped the city catch the attention of meeting planners. At the top of the list: Columbus’ expanding accessibility, within driving distance from three neighboring states and with new direct flights from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and elsewhere. With more than half a million square feet of meeting space (many that are “under the radar and over the top” as one VisitColumbusGA team member puts it), as well as 500 rooms in the city’s Uptown Meeting Campus, it’s ready to welcome groups of all sizes.

But perhaps most importantly for attendees, this is a city that knows how to have fun, with unique museums, dining options to appeal to every palate and adventurous outdoor activities sure to get your attendees’ hearts pumping.
