Oklahoma City, OK, USA

Why should your company attend the ADMEI Conference?

The ADMEI Annual Conference is the only conference for the destination management profession. This year, we explore why DMCs are The Right Solution with general sessions designed to help you understand what the client wants, concurrent sessions geared to the DMC owner, sales team and operations team and for important topics your DMC needs to continue to grow - and the very important networking sessions that help you connect to your peers. Each session is designed to:

  • Provide tools and techniques to increase your company's profitability
  • Boost your staff effectiveness
  • Improve your marketing efforts to gain more profitable clients
  • Increase your company revenue


I want to know more!

Here's all the great information about everything you want to know about the conference before you register:

I want to modify our company registrations...

You don't need to identify all the individuals from your company who are attending the conference when you first register.  If you have decided you are bringing 4 other staff people, choose Group of 5 and complete the registration.  We just ask that you provide us with the names of all your staff by 15 January.

Adding people's names is easy!  Modify your registration at your convenience.

I want to make our hotel reservations...

It's easy!  You can make your reservations online (yes, they have the option for making multiple reservations at one time) OR you can call the reservations line at 1-800-HILTONS and mention the ADMEI 21st Annual Conference (or group code ADMEI).

Please make your hotel reservations prior to 8 January to ensure you get the special ADMEI rate of just $169 single/double.

OKC-ing is Believing

Come explore the possibilities. Oklahoma City offers all of the culture, cuisine, attractions and amenities you’d expect in a modern metropolis. Located in the heart of the state, Oklahoma City's western charm and lively atmosphere create the perfect backdrop for the ADMEI Annual Conference.

And with its rugged Western past, working stockyards and title as “The Big Friendly,” it’s rich in cowboy culture as well. Oklahoma City has plenty of hustle without all the hassle. As you'll soon discover, there are plenty of things to do in Oklahoma City, whether you explore the city at your own pace, or embark on the complimentary ADMEI OKC-ing Tour. Come see for yourself why this hip city steeped in heritage and charm suits everybody's taste for fun!
