2019 Paddlesports Retailer Room Block

benefits of hotel room block reservations

Convenience. Staying in the block guarantees a hassle-free experience and ensures you’ll be close to official event functions.

  • The Renaissance Oklahoma City Convention Center and Sheraton Oklahoma City Downtown are directly across the street from the convention center’s main entrance and registration area. (The Renaissance even has tunnel access).

  • The Skirvin Hilton is just two blocks north but still situated in easy walking distance and on the popular northern side of the convention center. This fully-renovated historic property is a premium choice if you plan to mix a little vacation time with your business trip.

  • Three other hotels in the room block are the Courtyard by Marriott Oklahoma City Downtown, the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Oklahoma City Downtown - Bricktown, and the Residence Inn by Marriott Oklahoma City Downtown/Bricktown. The Courtyard is just across the street on the southern side of Cox Convention Center (next to the Chesapeake Energy Arena—home of the OKC Thunder NBA franchise). The Holiday Inn is northwest of the Convention Center in the Bricktown District, about a 10-minute walk from the show, with the Bricktown Brewery along the way. The Residence Inn is off of Reno Avenue halfway between the convention center and the demo site, about a 15-minute walk from Cox. It’s located on the Bricktown Canal, which provides a great 2-mile trail for a pleasant morning run.

Attendee Friendly. We negotiated special low rates with each hotel participating in the room block. Additional amenities include a generous 72- or 48-hour cancellation window prior to the show; the benefit of using a credit card to book without being charged until your stay; and protection from being relocated due to over-booking, which often happens with third-party aggregator sites. In short, it’s a low-risk reservation you won’t find anywhere else!

Community. Because the room block hotels offer the best rates in the perfect locations, most of your industry friends and colleagues will choose them. They are, by far, the best option for easy meet-ups and impromptu gatherings—join up for breakfast, drinks and dinner, or meet in the lobby before heading over to the exhibit hall. You’ll be surrounded by industry peers, all part of an international paddling community, who will be eager to discuss their favorite products at the show, the hottest trends for 2020, and the most epic spill at demo day.

2019 Room Block Offerings & Booking Links

Please note, the only way to book in the official PSR room block is using the links below. For various reasons our lodging partners cannot book a room block reservation by phone. Also, be aware there are unaffiliated “opportunists” who may contact you and offer to book your PSR accommodations on behalf of the show. We do not recommend using them and cannot guarantee any reservations made through them. Also, rates offered by third-parties will likely not be as competitive as the show-negotiated rates below.
