Ogden Has the Safe Spaces for Meetings and Events

We’re all weary of phrases like, “unprecedented times,” or “ever-changing world,” or “new normal.” Ogden, Utah has always been a bit unprecedented and different enough to avoid labels with a bland word like “normal.” Clearly, 2020 has brought with it changes, but our most fundamental elements remain. Especially for meeting planners.

With its eclectic shopping, delicious cuisine, exciting nightlife, upscale lodging, and flexible facilities for meetings and conventions — served up at the base of some of the most stunning mountains you’ll ever experience — Ogden remains the perfect place to open minds, elevate souls, and inspire attendees. Even 2020 can’t change some things.

And your smile is sure to grow knowing you can qualify for an up to $25,000 cash incentive (subject to terms and availability) when you book your meeting in Ogden before December 31, 2020.

Meeting the Demands of Today’s Meetings & Events 

Abundant hand sanitizing stations, mask requirements, and marked social distancing are small, but significant changes you’ll see at the Ogden-Eccles Conference Center (OECC) and throughout town. Similar safety measures you may not see unfold behind the scenes for the well-being of everyone in attendance, including all conference center employees being checked prior to starting shifts, and enhanced cleaning protocols followed throughout the facility.

The Best of Both Worlds

The versatility of the OECC facilities and the creativity of its staff ensure socially distanced gatherings indoors as well as stunningly beautiful venues outdoors.

Investment in technology enables meeting planners to effectively host hybrid gatherings by simulcasting in-person gatherings to remote locations with quality audio and multi-camera video.

Whether it’s smaller, secure space for board meetings or executive gatherings, or the spaciousness of immense ballrooms for exhibits, or the stunning beauty of our historic Egyptian Theater for presentations, Visit Ogden and OECC can accommodate your specific needs.

Metro to Mountain Experiences

At the conclusion of any given day of meetings or conferences, attendees emerge in the heart of Ogden’s historic and walkable downtown with its independently owned restaurants, bars, shops, museums, and galleries.

A short drive from downtown can take attendees to our internationally recognized resorts for after-hours socials that can include scenic gondola rides, hikes, or bike rides with unobscured views of the Wasatch Mountains and dining either al fresco or within their opulent lodges.
