ODESSA - The Permian Basin Oil Show may be months away, but surrounding area hotels are already feeling the benefits.

In Odessa alone, there are 1855 sellable hotel rooms, and we're being told those are already sold out.

The Oil Show isn't until October, but city officials say that despite the preperation and new construction, the problem is still significant.

The oil show usually issues 50,000 to 75,000 name badges for the entire event.

About 27 States are represented as well as 70 Texas cities, and several foreign countries.

Plus, over 600 exhibitors, making hotel rooms at that time, a big demand.
