The SMG-managed Greater Columbus Convention Center (GCCC) recently received five awards from trade journals, business publications and organizations, continuing the celebration that began with the completion of the 22-month, $140 million expansion and renovation of the facility earlier this year.
These accolades include:
• The inaugural Stella Awards honor excellence in the meetings industry. Honored in the supplier category as the best convention center, regional standalone facility in the Midwest, the award was presented to the GCCC by Northstar Meetings Group, publisher of Meetings & Conventions and Successful Meetings magazines. The Stella Awards – named for the Latin word meaning “star,” is a “new comprehensive program that redefines how excellence in the meetings industry is identified and celebrated,” said Northstar Meetings Group Senior Vice President/Chief Content Director Lori Cioffi. “This program shines a light on the truly outstanding organizations in our industry.”
