Origins has expanded your hotel options by adding a room block in Columbus’ new and beautiful luxury hotel, The Joseph by Le Meridien. Located in the Short North Arts District at 620 North High Street, The Joseph is less than 1/8 of a mile from the Greater Columbus Convention Center. The Joseph is a stunning property showcasing some of Columbus’ most incredible pieces of art from the Pizzuti Collection, and is only one block away from Pizzuti Collection art gallery. It also features fine dining at the Guild House, a Cameron Mitchell restaurant, as well as a modern workout center and luxurious spas. If you’re looking for something a bit more chic than the usual convention accommodations, check out The Joseph at www.starwoodmeeting.com/events/start.action?id=1508067888&key=1F579863 and take advantage of our Origins Gamefair group rates.
Hey GM’s, don’t forget events submissions forms are currently active and will be accepted on September 1st. Event submission will be done via web portal this year, please visit the Game Masters section of the website or click here to easily submit your events!
As you may have heard, the Greater Columbus Convention Center is undergoing a huge renovation project. The upgrades include a beautiful face lift and more space, but will span a two year period. This should only impact Origins 2016 and we already have plans in place to accommodate all your favorite events. Some programs and events will have new homes in different places or in adjoining hotel space forming an Origins campus! Parking and area hotels are not scheduled to be affected by the construction. Stay tuned for additional discussions concerning the layout of Origins in 2016.
At Origins, we work hard and we play hard. Join our volunteer family and find out what the show is really about. Many of our volunteers have been with us for years – and hopefully will be with us for years to come! Volunteers are ranked by year and are recognized every year at our volunteer party, which happens on the Sunday evening of Origins. All Volunteers receive a T-shirt and a bunch of free games!
