Carter’s Project Management Team Delivers Enid Event Center
Carter’s John Jokerst and Conor McNally joined the City of Enid yesterday for the official Chamber Ambassador Ribbon Cutting for the new Enid Event Center in Enid, Okla. Also in attendance were Bob Myers and Tom White, who are both Carter associates based in Enid. City Manager Eric Benson gave the opening introduction.
Carter’s program management team oversaw the construction of the center, which contains an exhibit and concert hall, as well as a multipurpose sports arena. “This project is a great example of the continued commitment the City of Enid has made toward this community as well as to the many visitors who will enjoy all the great events this new facility will offer,” Jokerst said. “We are so pleased to be partnered with the city and be a part of this outstanding project that will serve the residents of Enid and their visitors for many years to come.”
The events center is approximately 74,000 square feet and can accommodate ±4,500 in seating capacity. The main floor includes 31,500 square feet of show floor space and can be set up for exhibits/concert stages, with a 6,000 square foot area built-out for food concessions. The second floor houses hospitality suites. The architects for the project included Convergence and AIP, and the contractors included Key Construction and McNatt Construction.Global Spectrum is handling the venue management for the event center’s operations and has a great grand opening line-up planned on the calendar. This weekend the Enid Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a Business Expo, and later in June the event center will host both a Gary Allan concert as well as Cirque Musica.

Earlier this year, Carter completed renovations to the connected 53,000-square-foot Convention Hall. For more information, check out our previous blog post.
