Roland E. Powell Convention Center

Welcome to Ocean City

If you take over a 160,000 very flexible square feet of space, plus thousands of available hotel rooms and condo rentals, and add a beautiful bay front setting, 10 miles of gorgeous ocean beach, plus 3 miles of lively boardwalk, and you’ve got one successful convention destination.

Owned and operated by the Town of Ocean City with its partner the Maryland Stadium Authority, the Ocean City Convention Center offers the perfect combination of serious business and beach entertainment. Our soft, interior colors and natural woods combine to create a pleasant, yet businesslike, atmosphere.

The space itself is highly flexible. We can provide a wide variety of configurations to meet practically every need. Our beautiful bay front promenade is the perfect setting for networking and receptions with a nearby food court offering two modern concession areas.

In short, the Ocean City Convention Center is an ideal business destination year-round, just 5 hours from New York and Richmond; less than 3 hours from Baltimore, Washington, Norfolk, and Philadelphia.

Since the original opening of the convention center in 1969, the facility has offered outstanding customer service to clients and patrons of the venue.

The facility has been excellently maintained over the years and undergone some renovation and expansion. An additional expansion/renovation of the ballroom and loading dock areas has been approved for 2010 with construction beginning in November. The Town is also studying the feasibility of a theatre/auditorium in the future.
