Why Columbia?

Location, Location, Location.

We chose Columbia, SC as our conference hub for a variety of reasons. Tourism officials boast that Columbia is "Famously Hot." The CTC Directors discovered that business leaders are finding Columbia and the entire state of South Carolina a "Famously Hot" place to do business.

Sponsors and Vendors who have attended the Carolina Technology Conference in the past have started developing relationships and garnering business in this coveted area, that is still largely untapped.

In addition to being the center of state government, Columbia is home to the University of South Carolina. Columbia is centrally located. A bustling city with a wonderful ambiance and a festive nightlife, Columbia is an easy drive from anywhere in the southeast.

Too far away to drive? You can fly directly into the Columbia Metro Airport, or choose to land at the Charlotte or Greenville/Spartanburg airport and take a leisurely drive into the Capitol City from either location.
