Conferences & Meetings with Style

Whether it's training, an annual conference or staff meeting, the spaciousness and convenience of the Fawcett Event Center's newly-refurbished facilities will make your gathering pleasant and productive.  Our 500-seat conference theater, plus a variety of meeting rooms and outdoor patios provide the atmosphere you desire for your function.

Among the Fawcett Event Center's facilities is the unique Novice G. Fawcett Library, which provides a private, executive meeting experience for up to 12 guests. The Library is a perfect tribute to the teachings and philosophies of former university President Novice Fawcett and provides inspirational surroundings for your board meeting or retreat.

Planning Your Event

If your plans call for hosting a national conference, an office retreat, or anything in between, be sure to take advantage of our planning services and staff.  Our Executive Event Planners will assist you with all on-site arrangements, including the extensive catering options provided by our Executive Chef and culinary staff.

In addition, we can help with local hotels, transportation, tours, as well as the use of other facilities on The Ohio State University campus through our university affiliation and University Hospitality District participation.
