Location & Travel

See you virtually and in-person in Columbus, OH!

We’re also teaming up with the Ohio Museums Association to host a joint Virtual Day on Wednesday, July 24th. This robust program day will feature guest speaker(s), concurrent sessions, virtual tours of Columbus museums, and networking opportunities.

Here are a few things we love about Columbus:

  • So many unique, beautiful neighborhoods – old and new!
  • It’s an LGBTQIA+ friendly city and boasts the largest Pride celebration in the Midwest.
  • Their food scene is thriving! Lots of great food to experience in all areas of the city with some wonderful chefs paving the way, like Cameron Mitchell (award-winning cookbook author) and Jeni Britton (found of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams).

Columbus is within a 6-hour drive of many cities in the Midwest – Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Grand Rapids, St. Louis, and Toledo. Direct flights are available from Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, and St. Louis.

Our conference venue will be the Hilton Columbus at Easton, located 10 minutes from John Glenn Columbus International Airport and 15-20 minutes from downtown destinations. We’ll soon share instructions for booking your room and getting the best possible rate for your stay.
