Oklahoma City has earned a bit of reputation for big projects, with more than $5 billion of public and private investment in quality-of-life projects and improvements happening over the past two decades. “New” is what we do around here, and the best is yet to come. But beyond what's new, here's even more reasons you'll want to meet in OKC soon.

Your Attendees Will Love OKC

"The Decision to Attend Study," IAEE's recent examination of the behaviors behind the decision to attend, confirmed that a convention's host destination is a big factor with attendees: Number 2 on their list, to be exact. Also mentioned was the importance of rotation and experiencing new places. And more than half of those surveyed were likely to not only attend but also extend their stay or bring others with them if it was a destination they wanted to visit.
