Southern hospitality isn’t just a saying; it’s a way of life here in Columbia, S.C. The customer service you receive when working with our teams at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau and Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center (CMCC) is
like having a conversation with friends.
From getting to know you on a personal
level to working with you before, during and
after your event to ensure its success, we
truly care about you, your event and your
attendees. It is through these efforts that we
can strive to not only meet your needs, but
anticipate them before you even ask.
The only thing that rivals the hospitality of
the South is its food. Beloved culinary mainstays like Motor Supply Co. Bistro and Terra
to newer additions like Rise Gourmet Goods &
Bakeshop and The War Mouth are can’t-miss
options. Alternately, the CMCC staff can design
a custom menu that ;its within your budget, as
well as embodies the taste you are looking for.
Either way, you can’t go wrong!
Making your experience even more enjoyable
is Columbia’s climate. Take advantage of CMCC’s
exterior spaces. We have a garden and patio
space that can be used for outdoor receptions, so
