Columbus Brand and Identity

As Columbus continues on a growth trajectory, it is increasingly important to understand the ways our region is and should be recognized across the country and around the world.

To increase awareness of Columbus as an ideal place to live, work and play, the Partnership works across organizations and sectors to advance place branding and marketing efforts.
