September 18 through 20 will see Columbus host a National Association of Women Business Owners conference. For those female entrepreneurs already in the area, this could be a fantastic opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals. They aren't the only ones who could benefit from this event, though: Women entrepreneurs who live outside of the state could take this as a chance to learn about what it has to offer.

The Columbus Dispatch reported that this upcoming event will be most valuable as a way to show off the city's business potential. An editorial board said that the conference will also allow multiple prominent female business figures to appear.
Here are three brief reasons to consider Columbus:
- Conventions come to town: The same editorial noted the impact of the local "Make It Columbus." initiative. Because of this program, 125 different "meetings, conventions, trade shows and sporting events" have arrived in the city within the last four years.
- It's ripe for further exposure: This seems to be part of the reason the conference is coming to begin with. According to Columbus Business First, NAWBO's chairwoman-elect Kathy Warnick believes that the city is "just a little bit underappreciated." That could be a sign that Columbus has the potential to draw more business attention.
- Specific loans: Ohio businesses can be subject to specific loan programs, like the 166 Regional. Women business owners also have particular SBA programs they can look into for assistance. Those are multiple resources Columbus entrepreneurs can look into.
