MedCon Annual Dinner

Join us at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) located on the riverfront in downtown Columbus. With this nationally esteemed science center as the backdrop for your opportunity to dine and converse with your peers, the evening will be unforgettable! COSI has delighted central Ohio with all things science for 58 years, inspiring interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics and delivering a unique experiential, “hands-on fun” brand of learning.

Cocktails and dinner will be included, as well as full access to two onsite exhibits:

  • Energy Explorers: This exhibition focuses on how energy powers the world around us – the transportation we take, the products we buy, and how we live and work. You’ll learn where energy comes from, how energy powers the world, and why your energy choices matter.
  • Dinosaur Gallery: In the American Museum of Natural History Dinosaur Gallery, you can get close to dinosaurs such as the incredible T. rex and discover why these amazing animals never really vanished from the Earth.
