Not bad place to hold an event. We went to convention center for a concert. We had to wait until they allowed us to go in be seated while the grown continue to grow, I thought it was a little unorganized but it was well worth the wait. Nice show.

Went here for Georgia Fiber Fest. Love the building and the grounds. Loved that its right off the riverwalk. Meeting halls seemed really nice. Maybe could be a little more well lit.

The Columbus Trade and Convention Center has it all. You can book rooms for class reunions, wedding receptions, company meetings, large dinners, etc. The rooms are large. The food is good. It is also the place of choice for Wedding Shows, Holiday Parties and Christmas Made in the South (huge craft show).

The Trade center (aka the Iron works) host a wide variety of events weekly from corporate meetings to vast trade shows. There are lots of "halls" to utilize for different shows. This is not a place to just show up without knowing what is going on. There are not public events everyday. The architecture in the old section is very... More

We held our VN Army unit's annual Reunion at this facility. It is first class in every way. If you are in the need for a grand experience for any large gathering do not pass this one by.

Went to a meeting in this building. They have really done a great job restoring this old city mill. It's Beautiful on the inside. Such a nice place to have a meeting or conference. Friendly staff and provided great food for us. Nice view of the river too!

I attended another luncheon at the Convention Center and they one again did a great job. The staff was typically excellent and professional and the meal was wonderful. The addition of a jazz trio really set a nice mood. It was a beautiful spring day and the view of the river was breathtaking.
