The Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre
Bringing Technologically Advanced Security & Infrastructure to the Region

Strategically located on the Arabian Peninsula, Oman has been an arterial trading route for over 5,000 years. It is for these reasons that Oman will continue to be an important meeting place for people to exchange ideas and do business.

The Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre is situated within a purpose built, fully integrated business precinct which has been designed to accommodate world congresses, exhibitions, regional meetings, gala events, performances and concerts. The OCEC is conveniently located 10 minutes away from the new Muscat International Airport and is an integral part of a larger mixed use development, the business precinct is an oasis of enjoyment for delegates, exhibitors, and visitors. Overlooking the Wadi, this waterway and natural reserve is home to a variety of Oman’s exotic birdlife.

A five star hotel, two four star hotels, a three star hotel and serviced apartments, offering 1,000 hotel rooms within the precinct as well as a conveniently located shopping centre make the OCEC the most promising destination in the region for hosting the best of the international trade fairs including the upcoming Muscat International Jewellery Exhibition [MIJEX] slated to be held here in the month December this year.

As spoken to the New Jeweller Bureau Tell us something about the new OCEC and its advantages as the preferred venue for hosting exhibitions here?

The Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre is a worldclass venue designed to host different type of events and meet the demands of the most discerning event organisers. One of the key advantages of hosting an event in OCEC is the flexibility our venue offers. We have over 55 meeting spaces to host multiple events at the same time and deliver the highest quality of service. When it comes to MIJEX, we are expecting a large influx of visitors attending the show given its history and growth over the years. MIJEX is one of the shows we are eager to see it grow and it needs to be in a venue that offers flexibility in space.

In addition, jewellery shows require a high level of security. OCEC offers the best in class security services with 24 hour surveillance throughout the show.

Finally, we have to also keep in mind the accommodation of the international exhibitors who are exhibiting at the Exhibition. We are fortunate that The Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre is located in its own fully integrated precinct only four kilometres from the new Muscat International Airport and with all the i nfrastructure necessary to host successful international, regional and local events. The precinct includes a JW Marriott Hotel (five star) linked to the Convention Centre opening in the near future and an already open Crowne Plaza OCEC (four star) which makes 600 rooms already on site with another 2 hotels to come.
