Closing Celebration

Saturday, November 7 | 7:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.

Celebrate and unwind with friends – old and new! The Closing Celebration is a time to relax and let loose. This conference’s ultimate celebration will take place at The North Market, just steps away from the Greater Columbus Convention Center. As Columbus’s only public market, The North Market features merchants selling an array of local food, goods, and international & ethnic specialties. Each of the 30+ food vendors will feature their best dish, allowing guests to excite their taste buds as they progress through the ground floor sampling various appetizers, entrees, and desserts. On the second floor, a separate event space called “The Kitchen” will feature karaoke and other activities. Local entertainment will also be featured throughout the night in a tented pavilion outside the market.
