Oklahoma City Oklahoma City is the ideal destination for meeting attendees to enjoy western heritage, arts and world-class museums, accommodations at affordable prices, and letʼs not forget the great steaks. Elisa Milbourn, communications manager with the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau, said, "Oklahoma City has the perfect blend of a cool, hip, metropolitan city with warm, inviting hospitality. Still holding on to our western roots, the city continues to grow into a vibrant city, with more personality as each year passes. We have something for everyone—from world-class museums to national championship sporting events. Weʼre affordable for large groups and accessible. If meeting in downtown, attendees can arrive at their hotel and walk to any downtown location during their stay. We are an upbeat, but laid back city that continues to surprise all who visit." ■ Where Attendees Can Experience Spirit, Passion & Grit With a rich history of western heritage, Oklahoma City provides unique venues that include the world-class National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Itʼs filled with the "spirit, passion and grit" that represents the amazing American story of the West. 46 ConventionSouth APRIL 2012 www.con v National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum
