It’s hardly exaggerating to say that Oklahoma City will soon be a brand-new city from a meeting planner’s perspective, and when they say “new,” they mean it. Opening near January 2021 will be a new, state of the art, Oklahoma City Convention Center. The $288 million center will feature nearly 200,000 square feet of exhibit space, a 30,000-square-foot ballroom and 45,000 square feet of additional meeting space. The position will open the new convention center and concurrently manage the existing Cox Convention Center (meeting/expo space). This complex is only the tip of “new” in OKC.
We are not looking for a traditional building operator, this GM must also have the drive to provide strategic direction around an experiential guest experience that is 1st in class at all levels. Oklahoma City is in it to win it…there has never been a better time to live and work in OKC.
