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.
Omni Convention Center Headquarter Hotel
Directly adjacent to the new convention center will be a new 605-room Convention Center headquarter hotel from Omni Hotels & Resorts.

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.
