A two-year, $55 million renovation of the Cox Business Convention Center is complete.
The 56-year-old convention center got an overhaul inside and out.
"This is 2020, and this is what 2020 looks like," said Cox Communications Vice President Roger Ramseyer.
The facility has a new eastern entrance and lobby, and its 8,900-seat arena has been replaced with a 41,000-square foot banquet hall.
Tulsa Regional Tourism Board member Bob McGrew hopes that lures more events to Tulsa. He said events’ total economic impact in Tulsa is $1.3 billion since 2014.
