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; Saturday, 9 to 3, with some exceptions. Please call 410-289-2800. Please check with your individual event to inquire about face coverings and any other requirements.

Director's Monthly Update 

We are happy to report that all the most recent shows, Jeep Week, Tri Association and Sessions By-The-Sea experienced maximum capacity, according to their established goals. We welcomed back Bikefest, which was  another great success. MD/DC Credit Union returned to us for an unexpected hybrid (summer) event, and will return on their normal June 2022 schedule. We end September with Lifespan Annual Convention, immediately followed by WBOC’s Shore Living Expo. Some great news - we have scheduled an additional volleyball weekend in May, 2022 with Rich Comley, making that three weekends in the spring!

We have educated employees of the safety protocol, and Centerplate has well.  We suggest our event organizers nform not only all your employees/volunteers, but perhaps post your COVID safety policy for all your exhibitors, as well as attendees, at your Registration/Check-in.  Include in your COVID safety policy a statement that ensures that they acknowledge and confirm they have none of the COVID symptoms.

We are here to host successful, safe events and feel confident that within guidelines organziers can achieve a successful event.  We are here to help you and look forward to hosting your event for years to come! 

  Stay safe and healthy! 

Warmest regards,

Larry Noccolino, Director
