 Why Columbus?


One visit to Columbus is all you need to see how it earned its nickname as the Biggest Small Town in America. Considered by its residents to have "lifestyle pockets" as opposed to neighborhood ethnic communities, Columbus continues to rise as a hip and modern city.

Home to more fashion designers than any other U.S. metropolis outside of Los Angeles and New York City, Columbus also boasts a farm-to-fashion ecosystem that feeds off fresh talent in the industry. But Columbus isn't just known for being a trendsetter in the fashion world. It's also known among Millenials as a great destination for food.

There are dozens of craft beer pubs and local breweries located within the city limits. Distilleries also make a presence, with several local facilities being the producers of choice at area cocktail bars. Restaurants aren't left behind, either - easy access to the best local ingredients give chefs multiple options for creativity and style, providing local menus with a bevy of culinary tastes for even the most demanding palates.

Every city has an arts scene, and Columbus is no different. With a variety of independent artists, professional troupes, and artists-in-residence, Columbus is considered one of the "30 Most Fun Places to Live in the U.S." by U.S. News & World Report.

Oh, and did we mention that Columbus is also home to the powerhouse The Ohio State University? The campus alone is worth a visit, even if it's not your alma mater.

Consider extending your stay through the weekend after the Product Stewardship Conference is over; there's a lot for Columbus to offer you​.
