Unfortunately, our 2017 location, the Holiday Inn Columbus North-Worthington is scheduled for demolition in the summer of 2018. Fortunately, we have secured a new site: one we hope to grow into through the next few years.
We will be moving downtown for 2018! That’s right, Buckeye Game Fest will be located at the same place where you’ve come to love other conventions: most notably Origins Game Fair. We will be in the Hyatt Regency in downtown Columbus, Ohio.
Attached to the Greater Columbus Convention Center, the Hyatt Regency features some of the best amenities in all of Columbus. Our location will be situated on the first floor of the Hyatt Regency itself, just a short walk from the food court and convenience stores. Additionally, there are numerous dining options within an easy walk in the Arena District and North Market. A quick Uber or Lyft will take you to the Brewery District where even more dining options abound.
The BGF room rate is only $119/night whether staying for one night or several. To get this rate, mention Buckeye Game Fest on the phone. Online discount code will be coming soon!
This location is easily accessible by car or public transportation. There is an airport shuttle that runs daily. The Hyatt is both the first and the last stop on the shuttle before the airport, so you’ll spend the least amount of time on the shuttle possible and get ready for gaming that much faster. If you want to drive your own car, there will be discounted overnight parking for all BGF attendees staying at the hotel. We are also working with local parking vendors to negotiate lower rates during the event. Details will be available closer to the event.
