What's New and What's Coming
It’s hardly exaggerating to say that Oklahoma City will soon be a brand new city from a meeting planner's perspective, and when we say "new," we mean it.
Oklahoma City Convention Center
The $288 million center will feature nearly 200,000 square feet of exhibit space, a 30,000-square-foot ballroom and 45,000 square feet of additional meeting space. With a prime location across the street from the new Scissortail Park and just south of Chesapeake Energy Arena, the convention center will open in 2020.

70-acre Scissortail Park
Directly west of the Convention Center will be a 70-acre, fully programmed park that will connect downtown OKC to the shores of the Oklahoma River. Construction began last month on a 40-acre section across from the new Convention Center and will be completed in 2019, with the lower 30-acre portion set to open in 2021. The park will provide visitors with a variety of recreation activities, including concerts, walking/biking/running trails, picnic sites, youth sports fields, play areas, interactive water features and outdoor education opportunities.
