Oklahoma City is continuing to make headlinesPublished: Thursday, November 4, 2021 By: Roy Williams Source: VeloCity Newsletter
Our history books will look back at 2021 as a time when we made major leaps forward, particularly in our rise as a visitor destination. The new First Americans Museum is a world-class attraction that will bring visitors from around the world and, most importantly, help both our residents and our visitors understand the full story of Oklahoma’s origins. When added to the new convention center and Omni Hotel, our potential only grows stronger.
In late September, the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce brought a group of more than 50 of their business and community leaders to Oklahoma City to learn about our region’s continued growth, and they walked away inspired and impressed.
Next September, our city will host the International Economic Development Council for their annual conference. We are preparing now to host economic development leaders from around the country and know they will walk away with the same impression as the leaders from Wichita did last month. As we get closer to those events, I hope I can call on our membership for support and volunteers to ensure each of our visitors walks away with an outstanding experience..
There are more events, like the IEDC conference, that could bring recognition and visitor dollars to our city. Think about the events you attend and consider helping our CVB bring them to OKC. Our team will work closely with you to not only attract the event to OKC, but also to make sure they have an a great experience here. These events are the perfect opportunity to bring industry and opinion leaders to our city. I look forward to working together to share all our city has to offer .
