The Greater Columbus Convention Center has free Wi-Fi everywhere throughout our building. It is intended for “light-use” with a speed of about 256 Kbps (upload & download). If it is not fast enough for your needs, Fern offers fee-based Wi-Fi with very fast speeds (priced at prevailing rates), that can be configured to your needs.

Shipping your exhibit materials

Shipping to the Conference
The Exhibitor Services Kit includes detailed information on where to ship your materials. Depending on when you are shipping your items, you may not be sending your materials directly to the convention center. Contact the Conference decorator with any questions.

Shipping after the Conference
Make your own arrangements for a pick-up at the convention. The decorator will offer freight services on-site if you don’t make prior arrangements, but please note that this will likely be more expensive than typical UPS or FedEx rates.

For NAPAMA members interested in the caravan, please contact Michele Safarik.
