Oman convention centre wins top award

The Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre has won the World’s Leading New Exhibition & Convention Centre Award at the World Travel Awards 2019.

The win recognises Omran property’s commitment to excellence and establishes the sultanate as an emerging business tourism destination.

The World Travel Awards are voted on by travel and tourism professionals and consumers around the world who selected the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre out of a lineup of six nominees that included venues in Miami, Japan and Australia.

“This is a truly well-deserved award for the team here at OCEC who have put in every effort to bring the venue to the standard it is at today. It is also a deserved recognition for our owners, Omran, who had the vision and the commitment to provide the sultanate with such a remarkable destination that provides opportunity and prosperity for the country,” said Said Salim Al Shanfari, chief executive officer of Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre.

“Surrounded by this beautiful land, we have an absolutely state-of-the-art venue and a team who work tirelessly to ensure a high standard of service with a warm and friendly Omani welcome for our guests. It is a privilege to have all of that recognised with this award and to play a small part in the Sultanate’s development,” he said.
Located just 10 minutes from Muscat International Airport, the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre has a lineup of new events in the pipework, including the 40th SICOT Orthopedic World Congress, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (RCOG) Congress, the World Cancer Congress & the International Gas Research Conference 2020, to name a few. - TradeArabia News Service
