Meeting and event planning choices include the capital’s Opera Columbus, lush H. J. Benken Florist & Garden Center in Cincinnati, and Cleveland’s two-level ANATOMY Nightclub + Ultralounge. When choosing an Ohio event venue, planners can also opt for the extraordinary: the Willis B. Boyer Museum Ship in Toledo is a Great Lakes vessel turned event space.
