Seeking Event Ideas for Buckeye Game Fest 2014

2014-05-01

We are still seeking organized event ideas for Buckeye Game Fest. Last year we had over 50 scheduled events, most of which were run by cabbies. This year, we'd like to fill the event space at our new venue, the Crowne Plaza Columbus North, with at least that many events... but we need your help figuring out what to schedule! Here's what we'd like to know:

  1. Your event ideas!
  2. Rough estimate of maximum attendance (by number of people) and total event time
  3. Whether you'd be willing to run the event yourself (it's okay if you're not!)
  4. If so, rough estimate of what day (Thursday through Sunday) and time you'd like to run the event

Please send an e-mail with all of the above to cabs.conventiondirector@gmail.com and we'll use this information to help compile the schedule. We are looking into the feasibility of having a proper program book printed this year, so the earlier we can lock down an events schedule, the better.
