Plan a
Convention with a view.

Ocean City, Maryland’s Roland E. Powell Convention Center has it all. Whether you’re planning for a small conference or a large tradeshow, our meeting and event venue can easily accommodate your needs. We offer newly renovated rooms, gorgeous bayfront views and a beautiful bayfront promenade to handle your occasion.

And because you’re in Ocean City, you’ll always find something to do outside of the convention center. Enjoy 10 miles of free beach, our 3-mile boardwalk, 200+ restaurants, 17 championship golf courses and a huge variety of accommodations. Plus, we’re easy to get to — OC is within 5 hours of New York and Richmond and less than 3 hours from Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia. If you’d rather fly, the Salisbury/Ocean City Regional Airport is just 30 minutes from OC.

The Roland E. Powell Convention Center is open to convention participants. The Welcome Center is open Monday-Friday, 8 to 4.  Please call 410-289-2800. Please check with your individual event to inquire about face coverings and any other requirements.

Director's Monthly Update 

It’s with great excitement that we are welcoming events to the all-new “Hall C,” as well as the rest of the building!  We broke ground in May, 2020 and Governor Hogan cut the ribbon on Saturday, February 19, with many dignitaries in attendance. Included in our Phase III expansion is the 30,000 square feet exhibit space connecting to Halls A and B culminating in 75,000 square feet of exhibit space completely divisible into three separate halls. A 15,000 square feet Bayfront Gallery overlooking the Isle of Wight Bay, serving two capacities: pre-function space and a separate entrance for Hall C. Brand new restrooms on the upper level make it more convenient for those events in our Bayfront Ballroom as well as existing breakout rooms, 25 in all. An enhanced Business Center is conveniently located adjacent to our show offices equipped with desk-tops, copy machine and more. As always, parking is free and, for most groups, buses are free. We encourage groups with our new incentives for Sunday through Thursday bookings and “Please join the many groups that surround their business week for the family vacation!”

Stay safe and healthy!

Warmest regards,
Larry Noccolino, Director
