About WMC: Off-The-Grid

This year, Go Media has set out to create a more intimate experience for the design community - WMC Off-The-Grid.

WMC Off-The-Grid is a three-day weekend retreat aimed at freelance and in-house graphic designers, small business owners and other design-minded creatives looking to step away from their screens to get advice from our expert faculty. Our attendees will come away with tangible tools and action steps they can use to grow their businesses and become more confident designers.

This intimate event is open to under 60 attendees, speakers, workshop leaders and staff. Located at Mohican State Park in Loudonville, Ohio, the WMC Fest community will come together in small cabins to bond over campfire and their love for creativity.

Included in your ticket price:
- 3 days, 2 night lodging at Mohican Adventures in Loudonville, Ohio
- All food, snacks throughout the weekend
- All workshops and deliverables from our expert faculty
- Group adventure

This event is open to all those ages 21 and over.

Please note:

All fees are non-refundable. If anything comes up in your schedule and you are unable to make it, you are welcome to sell your ticket to another designer who will benefit from the event.

Also note, all attendees must stay in the cabins we have reserved this year.
