Omaha, the (Multi) Billion Dollar Baby
Named after a Native American Tribe, Omaha means "Those going against the wind or current." The city proudly continues to live up to its name, ever changing and expanding to meet and set new trends. More than $8 billion is currently being spent on developments, enhancements, and modernizations that will help the city provide new experiences to convention travelers. This growth includes a $600 million dollar transformational renovation of Omaha’s airport (OMA). Conveniently located 4 miles from the downtown convention district, OMA offers non-stop service to more than 30 of the nation’s busiest airports.
Meet, Relax, Repeat
At the heart of Omaha’s convention district is CHI Health Center Omaha with more than 346,000 square feet of convention space and an 18,300 seat arena attached. Take a virtual tour of the convention center and view floor plans.
More than 3,500 hotel rooms in the downtown area and 15,000 throughout Omaha means exceptional hospitality can be found in every corner of the city.
