DesignColumbus 2022!

CSI Columbus and USGBC Ohio will host DesignColumbus on Monday, March 14, 2022 in-person at Mitchell Hall, Columbus State Community College, 250 Cleveland Ave, Columbus, OH, 43215. The annual conference and trade show unites hundreds of building industry leaders, experts and professionals for a day featuring inspiring speakers and superb educational sessions covering all aspects of sustainable design, construction and operational practices for buildings and communities, including their impact on people, the environment and the economy - locally and nationally. 

The DesignColumbus Planning Committee is seeking education programs that highlight new technologies, regional issues, high-profile projects and enhance the knowledge of attendees about design, construction and operational practices that promote green building. In an effort to promote new and diverse groups of presenters, strong preference will be given to those whose content is relevant to the regional audience. Acceptable presentation modalities include panel discussions, roundtables, project profile/case studies, interactive lectures or group activities. No sessions that are based on advertising a product or service will be accepted into the program.

DesignColumbus has presentations devoted to interior designers. The DesignColumbus Planning Committee is seeking education programs that offer IDCEC credits for Interior Designers. Presenters will have courses approved for IDCEC credit prior to the conference. DesignColumbus will not be responsible for obtaining IDCEC credits.
