The Resort At Lake Of The Ozarks Meetings & Events

The Event Center & Wedding Pavilion is the latest addition to the Resort at Lake of the Ozarks and the Encore Lakeside Grill & Sky Bar complex. This beautiful new facility is the perfect place for corporate events, banquets, meetings, conventions & conferences and weddings & receptions. The thirty-foot towering ceilings and four large window walls make a statement as to the grandeur of this Event Center.

The upper level provides additional meeting space and a bar that overlooks the lower level and is graced with a stone fireplace to add to the ambiance. This area is perfect for before &/or after event receptions, breakout rooms, or can even be set up as a wedding chapel to accommodate over 150 guests.

Directly adjacent to the Event Center is a large patio, covered with a beautiful white wedding tent that can easily accommodate 200 guests. There is even a beautiful bridal bathroom suite for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready for the big day.

Another part of this addition is an elevator tower with patios that connect to the two main hotel buildings and provide convenient access from all three levels to the hotel, down to the new event center areas.

The Event Center & Wedding Pavilion is the perfect place for couples to tie the knot, then dance the night away. Nothing better than a beautiful outdoor wedding surrounded by incredible landscaping and a lake view under a shaded wedding tent, then take the part inside for the reception.

The new Townhouse and Beach house adjacent to the Event Center provides 10 luxury rooms and suites for the wedding party, and the hotel provides another 144 rooms for guests.

The Event Center is much more than just a wedding venue, and has hosted Cycle Showcase during the annual Lake of the Ozarks Bike Fest, where it was home to dozens of the finest custom motorcycles in the country displayed like a museum, where hundreds of visitors are able to view these fine works of art.

Collectively the Resort and The Encore provide over fifteen thousand square foot of meeting and event space and offer a variety of options for groups and guests to host their important events.

"Thank you so much for the use of your facility for our training on September 13th. The hospitality was very much appreciated and the food was great. The officers enjoyed having a private space to conduct some training that we usually don't get. Also, thank you to Stephanie, she was great!"

"We are very pleased to share our experience coordinating a large corporate event which was hosted by The Encore Lakeside Grill & Sky Bar. Our company planned a unique event which included traveling 100+ people for a conference and overnight stay at The Resort at Lake of the Ozarks. This was a first ever event of this scale for our company and flawless planning was essential. From the beginning, the team at the Encore Lakeside Grill & Sky Bar provided our group with options and more importantly the confidence to execute. The Encore team quickly positioned themselves as a partner in our event which ensured precise communication. The event planning was flawless and the execution exceeded our expectations. Our team had an absolute blast with the first-class facilities and staff at The Encore Lakeside Grill & Sky Bar. We would highly recommend considering this venue as you contemplate a corporate (or other) event. Way to go Merlyn and team!"

"We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your wonderful staff at The Resort and The Encore for all their great efforts in hosting our charity event this year! Your Resort is a True Gem in the heart of the Lake of the Ozarks, and a real 5-Star property and experience. From the moment we arrived at your beautiful Convention Center; it was clear that we were in for something special. Your hotel rooms were clean and comfortable, the views of the Lake of the Ozarks are amazing, the food was delicious, and all your staff was friendly and professional. We look forward to coming back again for our event next year!" Derrick Johnson, Former KC Chiefs NFL Player Former & Dwight Johnson, Former NY Giants NFL Player

Tim and entire Encore Team - We recently had a work meeting event at Encore. I cannot think of one thing that you and your team could have done better. From initial planning to communication to accommodation - all of you were simply fantastic. Knowing we have such an incredible venue to have regular events at is a sense of relief. No doubt we will come back - and very much looking forward to it. Thank you!
