OKC Districts

Top 7 Reasons to Meet in OKC

1.   LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION 
Oklahoma is in the center of the U.S., Oklahoma City is in the center of Oklahoma, and downtown Oklahoma City is in the center of it all. We're easy to get to no matter where your attendees are coming from. And, with our convention center just steps away from a number of hotels, restaurants, entertainment and attractions, everything you need for a successful meeting is in one convenient location; no buses necessary.

2.   NOT TOO BIG, NOT TOO SMALL
We've been referred to by some as "The Big Friendly." Spend any time here, and it's easy to see why. With a metro population of 1.2 million, Oklahoma City is large enough to enjoy the benefits of a modern, urban metropolis. We just never lost our Oklahoma charm. Cool city. Warm hospitality. It's why we call Oklahoma City "Cool & Warm."

3.   YOUR DOLLAR GOES FURTHER IN OKC
Our low cost of living in Oklahoma translates to a low cost of meeting in Oklahoma City. Everything from room rates and facility rentals to restaurants and entertainment is relatively inexpensive, especially given the variety of options here. We certainly are affordable and stack up well against cities of similar size.

4.   WE'RE A CITY ON THE RISE
Since 1993, Oklahoma City has seen more than $5 billion of public and private investment in quality-of-life projects and improvements throughout the city. There's an energy here. Positivity. Optimism. It's the kind of place you want to be. It's the wow factor that makes you realize you picked the right place to meet.

5.   UNIQUE FACILITIES
When was the last time you held an event at an Olympic training site? The Boathouse District along the Oklahoma River is a U.S. Olympic and Paralympic training site and home to USA Canoe/Kayak. It's also home to some unique meeting space at the Chesapeake BoathouseDevon Boathouse and Chesapeake Finish Line Tower, with gorgeous views of the Oklahoma River and Downtown. This is just one example of the unique meeting venue options we have in OKC.

6.   HORSE SHOW CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
Who didn't want a pony when they were growing up? Full disclosure: We don't hand out ponies to your attendees. But we can certainly show them ponies, as well as Morgans, American Quarter Horses and more. Oklahoma City is the Horse Show Capital of the World with equine events happening at State Fair Park year-round.

7.   MEETING IN OKLAHOMA CITY IS EASY
This one pretty much sums it up. We just don't have the stress and hassles you'll find in other cities. Our airport is large enough to have the direct flights and easy connections you want, but small enough to navigate easily. We're a Right to Work state. We have a safe, walkable downtown packed with everything you need for a successful event. We're known for our friendly people. Things are just easier here.
