Ocean City, Maryland recently welcomed Governor Larry Hogan for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center, celebrating a 45,000 square foot extension. As the agency of record for Ocean City, Maroon PR (MPR) helped to plan, promote, and execute the celebratory event and subsequent media coverage.

On February 19, 2022, officials in Ocean City, Md. joined representatives from the State of Maryland, including Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan and Governor Larry Hogan, for the ribbon-cutting event and tour of the center’s multi-purpose Exhibit Hall, a new 15,000 square foot bayside gallery, a business center, and additional support spaces.

“Today is the culmination of 25 years of effort to get to where we are today as we expand the Roland E. Powell Convention Center and make Ocean City even more of a destination spot and bring more people into the town,” said Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.

The expansion is expected to attract an estimated 30 new events within the next two years as Ocean City looks to further its reputation as an event and conference destination.

MPR secured coverage from a multitude of news outlets including Delmarva Now, The Baltimore Business Journal, WBOC-TV, WMDT-TV, and WRDE Coast TV.
