The Ohio Expo Center & State Fair
Moody Nolan was brought on to design a new, larger, flexible exhibition space that would fill the ongoing void of event space in Columbus. Thoughtfully designed, the new space includes a large multi-expo hall (divisible into three medium halls), and two large meeting rooms (each divisible by three), that can accommodate all types of groups and sizes in the center. These meeting rooms were elevated in the space on a mezzanine level that allows an abundant amount of natural light, which also created an exterior covered porch/plaza event space below. Additionally, a cafe was incorporated to provide light beverages and grab-and-go foods for its visitors, as well a tribute space designated as the Ohio Agricultural Hall of Fame.
