COA Midwest Nationals "The decision to belive is the most important decision you will ever make"

Greater Columbus Convention Center 400 N High St Columbus, OH 43215



Spectator Info: One Day Admission- $20 Two Day Admission-$35

Please read this IMPORTANT INFO just sent to us from COA: Admission Sales

Due to the renovation of the convention center, we only have access to one ticket sales booth which will be located between halls B and C. This is a very small booth and while we will staff it with as many wristband sellers as we can, we expect the area to be extremely busy and long lines to form all weekend.

Admission sales will be open on Friday night. If you are able, PLEASE COME PURCHASE YOUR WRIST BANDS FRIDAY NIGHT TO AVOID DELAYS. Also, admission is cash only and the ATM that used to be in the convention center has been removed so please make sure you come with cash prior to your arrival at the convention center so you do not miss your athlete's performance.

Performance Hall Entrance/Exit

Due to the renovation of the convention center, we only have access to two banks of doors into and out of the performance halls.

One bank of doors (Hall C) will be ENTRANCE ONLY.

The other bank of doors (Hall B) will be EXIT ONLY. To help with flow, please use the appropriate doorways.

Hallways/Camping Areas

Again, due to the renovation of the convention center, the hallways at this year's event will be extremely tight and very narrow. The convention center has built temporary walls which take up much space in the hallways and the Fire Marshall is very adamant that people do not stop or camp in hallways. Our best advice is to stay in the performance halls, go to a team room if you have one, or enjoy some of the shops/attractions around the convention center. Moving in the hallways will be difficult and slow this year but with everyone's cooperation, the event should run smoothly!

Awards Hall

Spectators and athletes/coaches will all enter the awards hall via the air wall hallway between Hall B and Hall C - signs will guide you. As you can guess, due to the renovation, this hall is smaller than normal. We promise not to start awards any sooner than the times listed, so there is no need to come to the awards hall more then 5 min. before your start time. When awards are done, spectators can exit by moving forward, towards the left-hand side of the stage and exiting into Hall C. We do not suggest exiting through the air wall hallway that you entered from, as more spectators will be waiting to enter the awards hall and the flow of traffic will become hectic.
