<Tulsa’s Convention Center Selected by Meeting Professionals as One of the Best Meeting Sites in the South and as Top 20 Convention Center in North America
Tulsa, Okla. – Cox Business Convention Center has been honored with ConventionSouth’s annual Readers’ Choice Award, and celebrates a seven-time win as one of the best meeting sites in the South. The win comes as Cox Business Convention Center celebrates similar recognition earlier this week from trade show and corporate event planners with its inclusion in EXHIBITOR Magazine’s “2020 Centers of Excellence” award and declaration as a top 20 convention center in North America.
“What an honor to be selected seven times by meeting planners as a ‘Best Meeting Site’ and to also receive recognition this week as a top 20 convention center in North America,” said Cox Business Convention Center General Manager Casey Sparks. “These honors are a testament to both the dedication and expertise offered by our staff, and the hospitality offered to meeting planners and attendees by the entire city of Tulsa.”
ConventionSouth magazine has been a leading meeting planning resource for over 35 years andits annual Readers’ Choice Award program begins with nominations by meeting professionals of venues they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated venues are then complied onto an online ballet where more professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best. Cox Business Convention Center is among 337 convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), meeting facilities and hotels to receive the award. The 2019 award program has been the most successful yet with over 7,000 votes and highest social media interaction to date.
“The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South,” said ConventionSouth Senior Editor Marcia Bradford. “These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have contributed in determining that Cox Business Convention Center indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”
The industry recognition comes as the facility nears completion on its $55 million renovation to further accommodate state and national trade shows and corporate meetings. As a winning convention center, Cox Business Convention Center will be featured in the December 2019 Awards Issue of the magazine.
