The 2013 CUNY conference will be held at the Columbia Convention Center, which is located in a lively area of downtown Columbia called The Vista. The Vista is home to a mix of bars, restaurants, shops, galleries, theaters, and museums, and it hosts several art and music events throughout the year (see the About Columbia tab for more information and things to do). The 142,500-square-foot Convention Center was built in 2004, and has since hosted a number of national and international conferences and special events.
