Why Choose Our Destination?

It’s hardly exaggerating to say Oklahoma City will soon be a brand new city from a meetings perspective. Construction began in June on a completely new convention center, set to open in 2020. The center will have 200,000 square feet of exhibit space, a 30,000-square-foot ballroom 45,000 square feet of additional space and approximately 70,000 sq. ft. of pre-function space. Adjacent to the new convention center will be a new 605-room convention Center headquarter hotel from Omni Hotels & Resorts. Directly west of the Convention Center will be a 70-acre, fully programmed park that will connect downtown OKC to the shores of the Oklahoma River. The park, Convention Center and the Omni Hotel will all be linked to attractions, dining and nightlife in districts around downtown by the recently opened light rail streetcar system. Want to take a closer look? Check out the 3-D fly-through via our website at www.MeetInOKC.com.
