Conceived as either a stand-alone facility for the public or as an enhancement amenity to the adjacent hotel complex, The Oasis Convention Center was converted from its previous life as a performance theatre. The lighting, sound systems, and interior finishes were upgraded to provide an upgraded environment both for large banquets and exhibits. The exterior metal walls were treated with acoustical panels to provide a better sound environment for large groups of people. One of the major design features of the space is the vibrant carpet throughout. The large scale of the carpet pattern and its multi-color scheme helps to set the tone for a lively ambiance for the convention center.
