Corporate Training

Utilize De Novo Barn for your next training event. Whether you’re training new employees or providing continuing education, your employees are probably more likely to enjoy it in our cozy barn.

Many businesses do not have a space that is big enough to hold all their employees. Consider a visit to De Novo Barn for your next company-wide meeting. We’ll provide the space – you provide the presentation.


If you are hosting a small industry or special interest conference, consider renting the De Novo Barn for the day – or for a week. Close to quaint downtown Decorah, camping, hotels, and restaurants, your conference attendees will not have any trouble finding everything they need.
