Profile:
Itís no exaggeration to say that Oklahoma City will soon become a brand-new destination from a meetings perspective. In addition to the Cox Convention Center and Bennett Event Center, construction recently began on the $288 million Oklahoma City Convention Center, set to open in 2020. In addition, Omni Hotels broke ground on a 605-room headquarter hotel just north of the Oklahoma City Convention Center. Both will be east of the 70-acre Scissortail Park, an urban oasis that is also under construction, which will feature a great lawn, native wooded and prairie landscapes, a lake, and plenty of entertainment and recreation options. All of these additions to Oklahoma City will be serviced by an all-new modern streetcar that will service six miles of downtown Oklahoma City. Want a closer look? Check out the 3-D flythrough of OKC circa 2020 at MeetInOKC.com. While there, you can track the progress on each new project and see what Oklahoma City has to offer meeting planners and attendees.

KEY FEATURES

NEW HOTEL
Expected to open in late 2020, the 605-room Omni Hotel will be located just south of the forthcoming Oklahoma City Convention Center. The new hotel will feature approximately 78,000 square feet of additional meeting space, four restaurants, a rooftop pool, and a skywalk that connects to the convention center.

MODERN STREETCAR
Later this year, Embark will launch the OKC Streetcar with two routes that link downtown attractions, including a stop at the new convention center. When completed, the streetcar system will be one of the most extensive start-up systems of its kind in North America.

DOWNTOWN PARK
Scheduled to be fully open by 2021, Oklahoma Cityís Scissortail Park, which sits just west of the new convention center site, will provide visitors with a variety of activities, including concerts, play areas, walking/biking/running trails, picnic sites, sports fields, outdoor educational opportunities, water features, and public art.
