Discover a meeting destination that’s anything but dry! At Ohio’s Lake Erie Shores & Islands you and your colleagues will experience first-class event facilities and hospitality surrounded by miles of beautiful shoreline and activities one can only find at the water’s edge!
This freshwater destination provides an exceptional location for your event. It is less than an hour’s drive from both Cleveland and Toledo airports, and is easily accessible via the Ohio Turnpike and other major state routes. Parking is complimentary at nearly all the meeting locations and resorts. And, this coastal region offers stunning scenery and natural areas as well as numerous entertainment options, including Cedar Point, cruises to the islands, five indoor waterpark resorts and flourishing fishing opportunities.
With over 615,000 sq. ft. of versatile meeting space and multiple alternative venues, the Lake Erie Shores & Islands has the ability to host most traditional events, but it’s the non-traditional events that peak with creativity. From intense board meetings and intimate banquets to large-scale tradeshows, the site options are endless. Choices range from a professional, top-notch convention center connected to Ohio’s largest hotel and the nation’s largest indoor waterpark to a quaint, Victorian-style island retreat that is accessible by means of a relaxing ferry ride or scenic flight over the lake.
From initial contact to the final good-bye, professional welcome center staff is eager to help with every detail. Submitting formal proposals; coordinating bids for facilities and accommodations; providing photos, logos and copy for your promotional materials; and offering a welcome speaker, registration assistance and visitor literature are all standard services.
