The stunning new Oklahoma City Convention Center is a total of 500,000 square feet and includes a 200,730 square foot exhibit hall, which is divisible into four halls; a versatile 29,874-square-foot ballroom with 5,000-square-foot pre-function space and terrace overlooking Scissortail Park and nearly 45,000 square feet of meeting space; and a 9,726-square-foot junior ballroom. There will also be more than 65,000 square feet of pre-function space.
This center is a $288 Million project funded by the MAPS3 capital improvements program in Oklahoma City. MAPS3 uses a one-cent, limited term sales tax to pay for debt-free projects. The program was voter approved in December 2009 and included land acquisition and other related expenses. Construction began in 2012 and is scheduled to open January 2021. The state-of-the-art building is east of Scissortail Park along Robinson Boulevard and is served by another MAPS3 Project, the OKC Streetcar.
