Today, the Oklahoma City Convention Center joins organizations across the globe to support the annual Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID). GMID, led by the industry advocacy coalition Meetings Mean Business (MMB), showcases the proven value that business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows and exhibitions bring to businesses and the economy. This year’s GMID theme is Meet Safe, recognizing the industry’s top priority of operating meetings and events with health and safety top-of-mind.


“The Oklahoma City Convention Center prides itself on being a welcoming partner in our community, and now we need all visitors to know it is a safe one as well,” said Al Rojas, Oklahoma Convention Center General Manager. “We have implemented best-in-class COVID-19 protocols through ASM Global’s VenueShield to provide a healthy and safe environment.  We are committed to stand out as a safe choice for visitors to the OKC destination.”

The current landscape for meetings and events is one of the most challenging in our history. Even so, industry professionals rise to the occasion time and time again – from GMID 2020, where event planners in all regions swiftly pivoted their plans to virtual; to today, where businesses and destinations are holding safe in-person events and embracing the hybrid model as necessary.


In honor of GMID, ASM Global venues, including Oklahoma City will offer meeting and event planner incentives for new business booked during the month of April. For more information on incentives, please visit
