A standout facility in the heart of the Caribbean
The award winning Montego Bay Convention Centre (MBCC), the largest convention facility of its kind in the English –speaking Caribbean, has won the World Travel Award for the Caribbean’s Leading Meeting and Conference Centre for six consecutive years from 2011 to 2016.
The Montego Bay Convention Centre has carved out premiere venue status in the Caribbean. This highly regarded facility hosted several major events this year, such as, FOROMIC 2016, Caribbean Development Bank’s 46th Annual Board of Governors Meeting, LatinFinanace 2nd Caribbean Finance and Investment Forum and Inter-American Network on Government Procurement 7th Conference.
Opened in 2011, the SMG managed facility is one of a select few in the Caribbean to offer both comprehensive meeting spaces and modern amenities. The Centre’s more than 139,000 square feet of space has been designed to accommodate exhibitions, conventions and galas, with built-in technology features such as projectors and projection screens. Bedsides its intelligent design, the MBCC is also visually striking. Attendees have views of both the coast and the mountains and the Centre’s plantation style shutters and cut stone work recall Jamaica’s classic Georgian style of architecture.
The open-air layout of the facility- the meeting, exhibition and ballroom spaces are all housed in three separate buildings, and connect via outdoor walkways –giving attendees the chance to get outside more than the typical convention centre might allow. Many of the MBCC’s indoor spaces feature plenty of natural light, and the property offers a number of outdoor event spaces, like the 17,000-square-foot Ocean View Terrace – which accommodates up to 1,500 for banquet style functions – and the MBCC’S courtyard, capable of holding up to 2,600 guests for receptions within its 25,000 square feet space.
The MBCC’s largest space the 57,525 –square-feet Exhibition Hall, this impressive space spans two buildings and offers room for 282 booths as well as 4,700 guests seated banquet style or 6,200 seated theatre style. For special events, the 18,684-square-foot Grand Ballroom can seat up to 1,580 for banquets-and for meetings, nine meeting rooms offer 10,161 square feet, with the largest accommodating up to 600 attendees. The Centre’s entire pre-function lobby areas come outfitted with built in reception desks and comfortable seating.
Supporting these spaces are the MBCC’s well-equipped catering facilities. A 15,000-square-foot kitchen, along with additional prep spaces, means that everything from tea breaks to five-course banquets run seamlessly. Ample parking, coach bays, and freight access in the Exhibition Hall offer added convenience for larger events.
As for on-site technology, all of the MBCC’s meeting, exhibit, and ballroom spaces come equipped with videoconferencing capabilities and high-speed Internet. A full-service business centre, a fully integrated broadcast and teleconference system, and an on-site team of audiovisual technicians all help ensure that meetings and events run smoothly while groups are in house.

New. Since 1993, Oklahoma City has seen more than $5 billion of public and private investment in quality-of-life projects and improvements throughout the city. That urban renaissance has created a city buzzing with activity.
Convenient. Our central location means we’re easy to get to no matter where your attendees are coming from. Our airport is large enough to have the direct ﬂights and easy connections you want, but small enough to navigate easily. With 22 nonstop ﬂights to 19 destinations in the U.S., including West and East Coast cities, getting to Oklahoma City is a breeze. And Will Rogers World Airport is conveniently located less than 15 minutes from downtown.
Walkable. Downtown Oklahoma City is delightfully walkable. With our convention center just steps away from a number of hotels, major attractions and the many restaurants and entertainment options in the Bricktown Entertainment District, everything you need for a successful meeting is in one convenient location; no buses necessary.
Friendly. OKC is a town of friendly folk. With a metro population of 1.2 million, we’re large enough to enjoy the culture, cuisine, attractions a modern metropolis. We just never lost our Oklahoma charm. We’re all of the hustle without all of the hassle.
Unexpected. The Boathouse District along the Oklahoma River is a U.S. Olympic and Paralympic training site and home to USA Canoe/Kayak. It’s also home to some wonderfully unique meeting space at the Chesapeake Boathouse, Devon Boathouse and Chesapeake Finish Line Tower, with gorgeous views of the Oklahoma River and downtown. Didn’t expect that in OKC? We hear it all the time. This is just one of the ways in which Oklahoma City consistently surprises, delights and exceeds expectations.
