Experience Columbus is aiming for a “world-class” label for the city’s convention and tourism business.
A recent bid to host the Republican National Convention in 2016 and a likely bid on the 2016 Democratic bash are considered the latest evidence of how far the city has come.
"We’re going to talk about some of the transformation our community is undergoing and some of the many projects that are making Columbus more beautiful, accessible and vibrant for our businesses,” Brian Ross, CEO of Experience Columbus, told a full house yesterday at his organization’s annual meeting at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s on board with Columbus having a national political convention.
"[The Arnold Sports Festival] is an event that other cities covet, but it remains in Columbus," Schwarzenegger wrote in a letter yesterday. "Why? Because Columbus accommodates the Arnold Festival with venues, hotel rooms, transportation and visitor amenities for 175,000 visitors from around the world. And Columbus stands out against competing cities because of its widespread community collaboration to accommodate visitors and hold successful events.”
