Meeting executives will find Oklahoma City one of the most accommodating meeting destinations in the Southwest. Its 16,000 hotel rooms, affordable rates, and friendly atmosphere make it an ideal location for any size meeting, from a corporate conference of 25 people to an international convention with 20,000 delegates. The Oklahoma City Convention & Visitors Bureau offers complete convention servicing and support, using a computerized housing bureau and registration technology.
Conveniently in the Center of it All
With our convention center just steps away from a number of hotels and the vibrant Bricktown Entertainment District, downtown Oklahoma City gives a whole new meaning to centrally-located.
The Cox Convention Center features 100,000 square feet of exhibit space, a 25,000-square-foot ballroom, 21 meeting rooms and a 15,000-seat arena, all connected by a skybridge to the Renaissance Oklahoma City Convention Center Hotel. There are 1,600 hotel rooms located in downtown Oklahoma City, all within a few blocks of the Cox Convention Center.
Directly to the east of the Cox Convention Center is Bricktown. Once a busy warehouse area, today Bricktown is Oklahoma City's hottest entertainment and dining district. With dozens of restaurants, nightlife and a generous helping of turn-of-the-century charm, Bricktown offers visitors a variety of activities in downtown Oklahoma City. Enjoy a stroll along the mile-long Bricktown Canal, take a cruise on a Bricktown Water Taxi or listen to some tunes at one of the various music venues.
Directly to the west of the Cox Convention Center is the Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory. In April 2011, the Myriad Botanical Gardens unveiled brand new adventures for the entire family thanks to a $38 million transformation project. The outdoor grounds were completely transformed into an urban recreation wonderland, complete with a restaurant, interactive water features, a new children's garden, dog release area, grand event lawn and more.
A few blocks to the north of the Myriad Botanical Gardens is the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. The museum's collection highlights European and American art of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, a growing collection of contemporary art and a comprehensive collection of glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly.
Our streamlined airport and lack of traffic mean you can be downtown in about 20 minutes. And with the best restaurants and nightlife just a few minutes' walk from the convention center and your hotel, you're out-on-the-town even faster.
