In the center of America’s Heartland, Nebraska has much to offer meetings and events looking for a Midwest hub at an affordable rate. Omaha, the state’s largest city, has seen billions of dollars in developments in recent years, modernizing the metro’s offerings and upping its hosting capabilities. Or, give Lincoln, the state’s capital, an extra look. About an hour’s drive from Omaha, Lincoln is a hub for agriculture meetings, association meetings and more, and can offer city haps of its own, anchored by University of Nebraska, home of the Cornhuskers.

Beyond Omaha and Lincoln, other smaller cities are ready to welcome meetings and events. Kearney is a good example, where you’ll find modern meeting amenities but a small-town feel.
