Meeting Space Options

Located in the heart of the dynamic downtown Arena District, Nationwide Arena may be best known as the home of your Columbus Blue Jackets and central Ohio's premier sports and entertainment destination. However, what may not be so widely known is the fact that the multi-purpose Nationwide Arena and attached OhioHealth Ice Haus boast a variety of unique locations for your business or social functions.

Choose from well-designed and traditional meeting spaces or unique settings such as the spacious Bud Light Terrace on the Main Concourse or the Sky Terrace on the Press Level. In addition to selecting the perfect space to suit your needs, our staff can facilitate your foodservice requirements. Customized catering services provided by Sportservice range from hearty business breakfasts and sumptuous sit-down luncheons or dinners, to elegant buffets.
