Meeting Ideas You’ll Love

Let Mansfield captivate your attendees with professional meetings sites, memorable team-building retreats, and jaw-dropping venue backdrops. Explore some of our meeting ideas.

Creative Meeting Sites

Help put excitement and anticipation in your meeting agenda. Hold a meeting in a timber-frame log cabin right at a championship golf course at Deer Ridge Golf Club. Put your Executives behind the wheel on an actual race track at the Mid Ohio Driving School. Retreat to nature with the Fleming Falls Retreat Center at Camp Mowana. It’s like summer camp for grown-ups!  Hosting a meeting during the fall?  Dare to take your group to our haunted prison: the Ohio State Reformatory.

Historic Meeting Sites

Create a backdrop rich in experience and atmosphere. Leave your group in awe at the grand architecture, Hollywood happenings, and an occasional ghost story at the Ohio State Reformatory, filming site of The Shawshank Redemption. Step back in time at Malabar Farm State Park for a meeting in a cabin in the woods and tour the home of conservationist and Pulitzer Prize winning author Louis Bromfield at the wedding site of Bogey & Bacall.  Make history part of your social time with an ale or wine tasting in an historic mortuary at The Phoenix Brewing Company or bank vault at The Vault Wine Bar!

Traditional Meeting Sites

Impress attendees with exquisite meeting venues. From an intimate boardroom setting at a B&B, to our largest facility, Mid Ohio Conference Center, with 33,000 square feet of space and 11,757 in their largest single room. There’s room for all sizes and combinations of seating and tradeshow space throughout Richland County. View our list of Meeting Venues.


Enjoy the flexibility and great variety the area offers in order to accommodate the family and friends that attend reunions. Let us navigate you through your planning process to offer your guests the best experience. Meals, attractions, activities, and suggestions on managing everyone’s free time and that includes places to just sit and enjoy being together again.


Mansfield & Richland County gets you out of the BORED room and into action, adventure, or simply nature. Whether you’re behind the wheel of a race car at the Mid-Ohio Diving School, team building on a zipline at Tree Frog Canopy Tours, or a paintball field at Battle Zone Paintball Park, your members come away refreshed and rejuvenated.  In the winter months, make some amazing memories for your team at Snow Trails and get everyone snow tubing, no skill required!  Let us help find area activities to enhance your retreat.

Religious Retreats

Richland County is full of Christian Heritage, retreat packages, and wonderful options for activities including BibleWalk with 5 tours plus a Christian Dinner Theatre. Ask about planning church events.

Request Info

Let our staff assist with rounding out the meeting experience for attendees as well as spouses and families who may accompany them.

Marketing/Meetings Director, Kim Miers, will help you locate the setting you prefer, assist with lodging rate inquiries, and work as a liaison between the community resources, facilities, and area offerings. You can’t meet like this just anywhere.
