Tulsa's Event Planning
The Midwest is known for having a flair all its own, but the unique marriage of Tulsa's historic Native American roots and oil boom heritage create a city rich in arts, culture and entertainment.
Centrally located in the U.S., Tulsa is an affordable and easy drive-in destination for event and conventions. For those who want to fly, Tulsa International Airport is just 15 minutes from downtown.
Planners and organizers are taking a closer look at Tusa - downtown and all around the city.
Tulsa Convention Center
The newly renovated Tulsa Convention Center now features a grand 300,000-plus square feet of meeting, exhibition and prefunction space along with an 8,900-seat arena to meet any of your convention needs. Perhaps most impressive in the new addition is the glass curtain wall echoing the architectural design of famed architect Cesar Pelli's BOK Center located just across the street.
When it opened in 2008, the 18,500-seat, 550,000-square-foot, multipurpose BOK Center was poised to be a world-class entertainment venue attracting premier entertainers performing to sold-out crowds. Now the No. 8 venue in the United States and No. 20 in the world for ticket sales, the BOK Center is putting Tulsa on the map.
Outside downtown, there is extensive meeting space available at Tulsa's QuikTrip Center at Expo Square. With more than $100 million invested in new facilities and renovations, Expo Square is home to the largest exhibit space in the region, which boasts 400,000 square feet, with more than 5,000 seats in the arena/pavilion.
