Columbus State earns national award

Update | Tuesday, June 28, 2022

An event held and sponsored by our Conference and Event Services has earned the Supplier of the Year award from Meeting Professionals International (MPI). It is awarded annually to an accomplished meeting professional, someone who has made significant contributions to the industry and their community, including our MPI Ohio Chapter. The 2022 award was presented for “Ignite: Sparking Conversation Industry Education Conference” held at Columbus State in November. 

Comments from judges said, “Patricia Huston (director of Conference and Event Services) and Columbus State Community College provided students from the Hospitality Management program an opportunity to participate and network. Patricia is a huge supporter of our chapter and the industry."

MPI strives to lead the world in education, networking and innovative solutions that advance not only the meeting and event industry, but the careers of the professionals in it. Through MPI’s global network of local chapters, MPI activates, educates, supports, and connects the connectors—people who are passionate about bringing people together.
