Meet outside the city and outside the ordinary when you plan a conference, trade show, or other gathering in Johnston County. Our location next to the Triangle, 45 minutes from RDU International Airport, and at the convergence of I-95 and I-40 make Johnston County an ideal place to hold a meeting.
With historical downtown areas and rural farmland, meeting planners have a unique mix of urban, modern, and rustic locales to choose from. Venues and services are being added and expanded upon in the county all the time. Brick & Mortar, downtown Clayton’s event space and catering company, completed a remodel to their interior to provide events for up to 220 people. Broadslab Distillery in Benson, NC has a meeting and wedding venue on-site that will hold 330 people called The Barn at Broadslab.
Secluded and Beautiful Venues
Due to the number of beautiful scenic farms, Johnston County also offers off-the-beaten-path venues for meeting planners looking for an experience removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. Locations like Camp Nellie and Portofino offer venues by ponds, in horse barns, and under the southern night sky stars.
