TULSA, Okla. — The Music Cities Convention is bringing its 2022 gathering to Tulsa.

The convention is expected to see global policymakers, music industry professionals, NGOs, academics, brands, and city leaders meet in the city to explore music's impact and legacy in Tulsa.

“The City of Tulsa is honored to host the eleventh global edition of Music Cities Convention in 2022,” said Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum.

“It’s no secret that Tulsa has a rich and eclectic music history of its own. This feels like a harmonic pairing: Music Cities’ great content, the gathering of industry professionals from around the globe and Tulsa’s unique music scene as the backdrop.”

The Tulsa Office of Film, Arts & Culture is hosting the four-day event which includes two convention days and a complimentary music tour of the city featuring staples like Cain's Ballroom, the BOK Center and the yet-to-be opened Bob Dylan Center.

The convention will bring attention to Tulsa's already historic and growing music industry.

The Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture recently launched the Tulsa Music Strategy to further develop the industry here.

“Tulsa’s music industry has an economic impact of $335 million," said Abby Kurin, executive director of the Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts and Culture. "And so we have a five-year road map and so we’re working towards helping grow our resources that Tulsa offers.”
