Here at the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau (OKC CVB), our mission is to promote Oklahoma City as a first-class visitor destination. We also help contribute to the economic well-being of Oklahoma City and its citizens through the solicitation and servicing of conventions and other related group business.

If you're looking at Oklahoma City as a potential meeting or convention location, we're here to make you look like a rock star for picking such a wonderful, economical, and centrally-located destination. Our convention sales and services staff would love nothing more than to make sure your event goes off without a hitch.

We're pretty proud of the recent progress our city has made, and we love showing off all that Oklahoma City has to offer. Public and private partnerships over the last two decades have dramatically transformed the face of the city, making it easier than ever to brag about OKC. 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.

New projects include a new convention center that nearly doubled our convention space, further improvements to the Oklahoma River, including the addition of a whitewater kayaking facility, a modern downtown streetcar system that links major attractions, and a 70-acre downtown park, and more.

There's an excitement in the air in Oklahoma City. And we have the enviable job of sharing that excitement with the world, spreading the good news of all there is to see and do in OKC.

The stunning new Oklahoma City Convention Center is a $288 million public project that opened debt-free in January 2021 and has hosted conventions, trade shows, and other events of all sizes.  The Convention Center’s design was heavily influenced by its relationship to the surrounding environment. Level 1 relates to the warm earth, Level 2 connects to the horizon line, and Level 3 takes cues from the colorful Oklahoma Sky. Strategic use of color and materiality supported this concept throughout the interior design. The soaring glass walls and spacious balconies show off the spectacular sunsets and sweeping views of Scissortail Park.

The 510,000 sq. ft interior includes a 200,730 sq. ft. exhibit hall. More than 45,000 sq. ft. of meeting spaces are available, and many have operable walls to make up the 27 meeting spaces. Two ballrooms, a 9,700-square-foot Junior Ballroom is on the third floor while the fourth floor features the Painted Sky Ballroom that spans 30,000 sq. ft. along with a large balcony overlooking the city skyline.  A $1.5 million public art installation of the award-winning “Virtual Sky” is seen from the west side of the building. The installation features small LED lights that are programmed for specific patterns and can also reflect the changing sky.

The OKCCC features VenueShield, the newest updated health and safety protocols, the latest technology with complimentary Wi-Fi access across the entire venue, and Encore AV Services. SAVOR, the exclusive provider of food and beverage features customized catering for events of all types. 

OKCCC looks forward to hosting SISO!

CSI Worldwide has been serving Show Organizers, Experiential Marketers, and Exhibitors since 1972.  Our General Contracting Division organically evolved from our deep roots in the industry as an I&D company.  We have been leading with empathy well before it became a thing, and customers who had become accustomed to the World Class service on a booth level, wanted to experience that same thing when they grew to have events of their own. 

This is because we don’t just build booths, we build relationships.

These relationships include ones we have cultivated with a nationwide labor force whose solutions always put the customer focus first.  CSI has successfully translated our World Class service from our I&D foundation into our General Contracting Division by not only having management and supervisors but also a labor force who has a vested interest in our customer's success.  We understand very clearly if you win, we win.  We look at every customer as a partner.  We also know that when we earn the business of a Show Organizer, that access to the exhibitor is a privilege, not a right.  Every exhibitor engagement is an opportunity to create solutions and make that customer feel like our only concern in the world at that moment is them.

We, like the industry at large, are so happy to see live events come back and are grateful to be able to be a sponsor of SISO and be here with you.
