The Greater Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau is excited to announce the dedication of its two new visitor information centers at Eppley Airfield. An official dedication with Mayor Mike Fahey is planned on Wednesday, November 2, at 2:00 p.m., and will be held at the south-end information center.
According to Dana Markel, GOCVB Executive Director, the new centers provide Omaha visitors a fresh new perspective of the city’s unique personality. “The centers give Omaha a much needed face-lift at the airport,” says Markel. “Guests to our city are welcomed by inviting information centers with stylish, contemporary colors and bold new graphics. A 42” LCD screen in each center will run informative multimedia presentations showcasing the city’s local businesses, area attractions and friendly lifestyle. Messages on the screens can even be personalized when visiting organizations come to our city.”
The new information centers replaced two out-dated booths that were more than 15 years old. The centers will continue to be manned by trained Eppley volunteers who provide a personal touch, while assisting visitors with their questions about directions, area attractions, hotels, restaurants and more.
The construction of the new information centers was made possible with combined contributions from the Greater Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau, Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, Metropolitan Omaha Builders Association and DLR Group – Architects/Engineers.
