The Hotel

The Forum hotel is the Renaissance Oklahoma City Convention Center Hotel. I think you will like it. It is very well located to restaurants and entertainment and is attached to the convention center that we are using for the Forum sessions. Make your reservations at 1-800-468-3571, but before you do, please keep reading.

AND, please be sure that Forum gets credit for your stay.  When you make your reservation, be sure to request that you be part of the MBA Conclave room block*.  Usually, being part of the room block saves you money.  On the outside chance that you find a lower rate at our conference hotel during the conference dates, please be sure to let us know when you check in at our on-site conference registration.  Doing so will help ensure that Forum gets credit for your stay, helps us avoid attrition fees, and, ultimately, helps us provide maximum value to you.

Be a presenter for the Entrepreneurship Education Forum in Oklahoma City!

Although the program is filling up, there are still spaces available for sessions with good take-away value. Come and share the good work you are doing!

  • Ideas for increasing participation of the business community and parents
