Interesting. Isn't this meeting usually held in cities like Atlanta, Chicago, and DC?? I don't subscribe to Black Enterprise magazine anymore.

Usually in the southern part in the country including Orlando. I used to subscribe but I've out grown the storylines as I have for other business magizines like Inc. etc.....


Mags like Inc, and BE are general story mags.

Yes, it's a good move. The turn out is between 1,500-2,000 people.


I'd like to see a national Latino event visit as well.

I would have to say Columbus is "growing up".

With the new hotel on High St that connects to the convention center we can attract larger events because we have the rooms to hold the visitors.

We can now put our name in the hat for a political convention. One of the qualifications is to have at least 21,000 hotel rooms. We now have that with the new hotel.

That's going to get great for the Short North business district. People stay in hotels and after business hours go out and look for food and drinks.


If you could get some sort of light rail system, that would be great.

Columbus would be the best city for a convention in the ultimate bellweather state. I bet both parties are creaming in their pants at the prospect, though I agree the gridlock would be horrible without an improved public transit system.

Luckily, every single road and highway is under construction at the same time in Columbus.

I've been back for a couple weeks on a visit and it's hard going anywhere without running into road construction.
