The 2016 welcome reception at the Hyatt Regency Columbus Hotel (attached to the Greater Columbus Convention Center) is a great way to kick off your M&M 2016 experience! Relaxed and informal, the event will feature a buffet supper with a Midwest-inspired menu, and some locally brewed beverages. (Non-alcoholic cold drinks will be available.)

After the reception, head to the trendy Short North area just outside of the Convention Center to check out some of Columbus' newest pubs and other "watering holes."
