The Cox Media Group Innovation Center is located on the bottom floor of our main media center campus on Main Street in Dayton. It's a 300 seat theater venue that hosts building events and will occasionally allow outside organizations use of the facilities. If you're attending an event, you can't park in the front guest lot - instead there's a very large parking area in the back of our building. The entrance to the Innovation Center is located at the back door near that parking lot.

We normally do not allow outside organizatons use the facility, except in certain situations. To see if you qualify, please contact Emily Broughton at emily.broughton@cmg.com to discuss the options.
