Oklahoma City Convention Center
Due to a one-cent sales tax initiative—MAPS3 capital improvements program—the Oklahoma City Convention Center was fully funded when its doors officially opened for business in January 2021. The $288 million downtown center offers nearly 500,000-square-feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting space. The exhibit hall is divisible into four individual halls that can operate independently—the perfect canvas for a trade show, convention, product launch or general session. The two ballrooms combined add up to 30,000-square-feet of event space and can be broken up into classrooms, theater and banquet areas, and the fourth-floor terrace provides attendees with ample room to get some fresh air while overlooking Scissortail Park across the street. The brand-new venue features Narduli Studio’s “Virtual Sky” light display that graces the glass atriums throughout the building, in addition to a glass wall design that floods the center with natural light. The artwork and bright colors throughout the building evoke Oklahoma’s beautiful skies and the state’s links to aviation history. Also, the nearby Oklahoma City Streetcar stop at Scissortail Park creates easy transportation to and from meeting sessions.
