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 

Please join us on New Years Day when we host the Mayor’s Open House and Concert. Doors open at 4 p.m., with the concert in our Performing Arts Center starting at 4:30 p.m. It’s with great excitement that we will welcome our first event, the Seaside Boat Show, to the all-new “Hall C,” as well as the rest of the building this coming President’s Day weekend with many more events to follow. We broke ground in May, 2020 and will be complete this February, 2022. 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 will 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 for most groups while participating in “Show Me Your Badge” as well. 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!”

Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year!

  Stay safe and healthy! 

Warmest regards,

Larry Noccolino, Director
