If you’re planning a meeting in Oklahoma, it’s likely you're targeting two main areas: Oklahoma City and Tulsa. The former is home to a growing and robust downtown convention scene, featuring a state-of-the-art, 500,000-square-foot convention center, an Omni headquarter hotel, a 70-acre downtown park, modern streetcar system and more than 19,000 hotel rooms throughout the destination. A booming culinary and arts scene adds to its attraction as well.

Tulsa, whose CVB dubs it “the world’s largest small town,” gives meetings and events that small-town feel with the big-city amenities many groups require. The Cox Business Convention Center downtown offers more than 275,000 square feet of meeting space, while a variety of hotels, historic buildings from the 1920s and unique bars and restaurants round out venues and experiences.
