The Port Watson Mini-Conference Center is the premier venue for hosting small business meetings and personal gatherings in the Cortland area. Located just minutes from historic downtown Cortland, the Port Watson Mini-Conference Center is just around the corner from I-81 with access to Syracuse (30 minutes north), Ithaca (30 minutes west), and Binghamton (45 minutes south).

Once the site of Potter Trucking, Douglas Withey bought the property looking to fill a void in the area by building a location suitable for hosting classes, meetings, family celebrations, and training sessions alike. In a large restoration process involving most of the family, two years later this dream became a reality. The Port Watson Mini-Conference Center now has four rooms and a pavilion available for rent to the public and is continually working on improving and expanding.
