About Us

The Arden Shisler Center for Education and Economic Development is a full service meeting, conference and development facility unlike any other meeting venue in the Greater Cleveland area. As part of The Ohio State University’s Wooster campus, The Shisler Conference Center combines spacious, well-appointed and comfortable furnishings with the very latest in training and communications technology.

Our expertise in Workforce Development and Performance Improvement Training has been developed though our partnerships with The Ohio State University’s Agricultural Technical Institute and the Ohio Agricultural Research & Development Center.  We are one of a select few conference centers in Ohio to meet the stringent qualifications for certification by the International Association of Conference Centers.

We specialize in conference planning, event management and facilitation, business training and educational services, multimedia support and complete meeting packages designed to fit any budget.

We offer ten uniquely designed and appointed meeting rooms, an executive conference room, a 5,000 square-foot conference / ballroom, a 1,000 seat auditorium, over 9,400 square-feet of exhibitor space, and access to two university libraries.
