Adding more events to its schedule, Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) has won the bid to host the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) Regionals – Fourth Middle East & Africa Osteoporosis Meeting in 2017 and the Sixth IOF Regionals in 2021.
“With the completion of phase two, comprising two tiered auditoriums, 13 meeting rooms and the Grand and Junior Ballrooms, the OCEC will be able to host conferences, as well as exhibitions, meetings, gala dinners and live events. This will launch a new and exciting phase in Oman’s business events industry, creating wide-ranging contributions towards the economic diversification and development of the Sultanate,” said general manager, OCEC, Trevor McCartney.
Already causing a stir among the world of MICE, OCEC has attracted great interest and currently has 22 international, regional and national exhibitions and conventions confirmed.
In its seven year forecast, OCEC expects to host almost 450 events by 2022 and welcome thousands of visitors each year.
