In April 2021, the Oxford Conference Center became the first meeting facility in the state of Mississippi to achieve Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities. As the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation, GBAC STAR™ helps organizations establish protocols and procedures, offers expert-led training and assesses a facility’s readiness for biorisk situations. The program verifies that Oxford Conference Center implements best practices to prepare for, respond to and recover from outbreaks and pandemics.
The Oxford Conference Center is committed to hosting safe meetings and events following all CDC, State and Local guidelines. Extensive sanitizing occurs every night and between events. Safe meeting practices can be customized to your event preference including socially distanced floorplans and catering that minimizes person to person contact.
From ozone generators and antibacterial foggers to frequent disinfecting of high touch surfaces, our staff is committed to your safety. Each member of our team is required to undergo a daily temperature screening.
Our staff is ready to help you plan a safe, successful meeting. Call today to discuss your options, including our new virtual meeting package to elevate your next hybrid meeting!

Our team is happy to travel from all over the state because everything we need is always right at our fingertips, whether it is refreshments, Audio/Visual, extra tables and linens or last minute recommendations! Other venues don’t come close to their warm hospitality. Everyone from the sales team, event management, IT and event staff are the nicest people we have encountered and for that we are grateful! Monique Horan, Performance Foodservice

Both I and the conferees were more than pleased with the conference experience in Oxford and at your facility. Indeed, many, many conferees opined that Oxford 2018 was one of our best conferences in our forty-five year history. Kevin Cope - South Central Society for 18th Century Studies
