Thirty-One Gifts' national conference kicks off today at Nationwide Arena

The Thirty-One party starts today.

Thirty-One Gifts, which was recently named the fastest-growing woman-owned business in the world by the Women Presidents' Organization, is hosting its national conference in Columbus over the next few days. Fourteen thousand are set to attend.

Taking place at Nationwide Arena, the event's highlight will be its speakers, including Leigh Ann Tuohy, whom Sandra Bullock portrayed in The Blind Side, the Female Factor's Bridget Brennan and Thirty-One's founder and CEO Cindy Monroe.

Throughout the week, conference-goers are encouraged to perform random acts of kindness throughout the city and post about it on social media using #Share31. The company will donate 31 cents to Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio for each post.

Welcome to Columbus, Thirty-One!
