Plan your event at The Point

From corporate trainings and networking events to immersion learning and hackathons, The Point ensures the customer-service oriented staff will help you host an event that allows guests to immerse themselves in the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of the building and the passion of The Point community.

Whether you need help planning a conference, corporate luncheon, team-building event, award dinner or holiday party, we can make it happen for you at The Point.

Request a Space for Your Event

University-Affiliated Events
To qualify as a university event, the event must be solely held for the Otterbein community, which includes students, faculty, staff, alumni or donors with no outside parties involved. Since university events are not charged for the space reserved, those hosting events are required to set up and tear down event furniture and props, as well as remove all trash and clean as needed.  The room should look exactly the same as it did prior to the event.

Additional Services

Maker Space
If you wish to host a team-building event, The Point offers Maker Space! Maker Space is comprised of five creative spaces providing access to industrial technologies not commonly available.  Maker Space event projects start at $20.00 per person and each person will be able to take their project home.

Marker Space has design studios with latex cutters, a rapid prototyping room with 3-D printers, woodshop, metal shop, computer lab and an advanced manufacturing lab with a plasma cutter. Each room has multiple machines and resources members can learn how to use and create personalized projects. From engraved cups, to 3-D plastic models, to wooden signs, the only limit to what you can create is your imagination.

For more information, please contact Maker Space and Laboratory Operation’s Manager, Curtis Smith, at or 614-823-2932.
