The Ohio LinuxFest is proud to announce that we will hold our 14th annual event at the Hyatt Regency Columbus on October 7 and 8, 2016. Ohio LinuxFest welcomes all Free and Open Source Software professionals, enthusiasts, and everyone interested in learning more about Free and Open Source Software.

The Downtown-Short North-Arena District location of Columbus, Ohio will be familiar to our guests while providing a more inclusive atmosphere. We will occupy the second floor which entails the three grand ballrooms. This means less walking and more inviting public spaces for interaction. We are also pleased that there are facilities for family restrooms and nursing mothers.

Also convenient are the food court, North Market, Einstein’s Bagels, The Big Bar On Two, and the Hyatt restaurant.

Our preferred hotel this year is the Hyatt Regency. Having the conference and hotel in one place makes it extra convenient and accessible for families and those with physical challenges.

You can reserve your hotel room with the Ohio LinuxFest block at a discounted rate of $142 a night. Our special room block includes:

  • $4.00 discount on self-parking at the Chestnut Street Parking Garage for Overnight Guests
  • Complimentary standard wireless internet access
  • Complimentary access to the onsite fitness facility and pool.

The conference is open to the general public. Keep an eye out for conference registration opening later this summer!
