Unique Differentiators

Battelle Grand

Meeting and event planners from throughout the country and their guests are discovering the splendor of Battelle Grand, the SMG-managed Greater Columbus Convention Center’s new multi-purpose ballroom that is the largest in Ohio.

Described by media and hospitality representatives as “the new place to be,” “a marvelous experience realm” and “a 15” on a scale of one to 10, Battelle Grand debuted in January 2010 after an extensive 16-month, $40 million renovation. Battelle Grand is receiving accolades both for its amenities and capability of accommodating large banquets, upscale trade shows, athletic competitions and wedding receptions.

Battelle Grand offers 74,000 square feet of premium, flexible space divisible into five configurations, with upscale wall treatments and carpeting, floor-to-ceiling windows and the signature LED lighting fins in the ceiling capable of 65,000 color combinations.
