Oklahoma City Convention & Visitors Bureau is proud of its recent urban rejuvenation and plans to spread the word about its progress to potential tourists and meeting planners with a brand new campaign.

The city’s convention and visitor bureau held several research groups over the past year that found locals and recent visitors enjoyed the destination, but those unfamiliar with the city had a much more negative view of it.

In an effort to publicize its change, Oklahoma City is pushing the hashtag #SeeOKC to encourage visitors and locals to share photos, videos and other content that highlights its businesses and attractions.

The city will be also be sharing its new logo, which incorporate the Skydance Bridge, and tagline, “OKC-ing is Believing,” via digital billboards.
