Tulsa Convention Center Wins National Award

The Tulsa Convention Center won a 2010 Facilities & Destinations Prime Site Award. The annual award is given to the top convention and exposition centers by Facilities Media Group, publishers of Facilities & Destinations magazine.

The awards are voted by the magazine’s readership of more than 51,000 meeting planners. The Tulsa facility was among more than 70 that won the award in the United States and Canada. The center also won in 2009.

The Convention Center recently finished construction on a 30,000 square-foot ballroom and the renovation to the existing facility. The ballroom is the largest in Oklahoma.

“The addition of the Tulsa Ballroom and the renovation to the Tulsa Convention Center makes downtown an even more exciting destination for visitors and residents. The additional space makes the Convention Center a better option for regional and national planners looking for large, flexible meeting and event space and those types of events help drive economic impact for the city,” said John Bolton, general manager of the center and the BOK Center.  

On Saturday, Jan. 16 from 10 am to 2 pm, an open house will be held to celebrate the opening of the new Tulsa Ballroom and completion of renovation on the existing facility. The public is invited.
