At IMEX Frankfurt 2016, the upcoming Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC), in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism, announced that the opening of OCEC Phase One would take place August 15. 

When OCEC Phase One opens, the newly launched Oman Convention Bureau will provide regulatory assistance for business tourism in Oman and spearhead the growth of the emerging industry, officials said. 

Her Excellency Maitha Al Mahrouqi, Under Secretary at the Ministry of Tourism, gave a brief presentation on the strengths of Oman as a MICE destination. Highlights include the Sultanate’s robust economy, enterprise culture, intellectual capital and youthful, multicultural population. The Under Secretary went on to emphasize the investment that has been made in infrastructure to support Oman’s business tourism, including the redevelopment and expansion of Muscat and Salalah International Airports; the construction of new regional airports in Duqm and Sohar; the expansion of Oman’s Air’s network route; the establishment of new budget carrier Salam Air; and the construction of many new hotels.

When it opens the OCEC will have over 236,800 square feet flexible column free exhibition space and ten hospitality suites supported by a full service kitchen, staffed by expert chefs. On top of that, the purpose built OCEC Precinct is ten minutes’ drive from Muscat International Airport, close to cultural attractions in Muscat, and within easy reach of a lineup of luxury hotels and resorts, said OCEC General Manager Trevor McCartney
