Building the Ethanol Business in Omaha!


As a city that thrives off of its ecological roots, Omaha is farm to table freshness mixed with agenuine respect for the land and how development impacts it.

The Omaha riverfront and downtown area have experienced tremendous growth over the last decade, and its growth is based on a vision of playing off the city’s natural environmental strengths. A great example is the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge which is within walking distance of the city’s convention center. This stunning 3,000-foot long suspension bridge stretches across the Missouri River, giving visitors an almost airborne experience and a spectacular view of Omaha’s skyline. “Bob” is the longest pedestrian bridge to connect two states; in fact the state line actually cuts through the middle of the bridge, so visitors can stand in two states at once – one foot in Nebraska and the other in Iowa. The project not only preserved and improved wildlife habitat but also provided economic development opportunities in a balanced, sustainable manner along the Missouri River.

We look forward to seeing you in Omaha in June 2023!

CHI Health Center Omaha


CHI Health Center Omaha is an arena and convention center in the central United States, located in the North Downtown neighborhood of Omaha, Nebraska. Operated by the Metropolitan Entertainment & Convention Authority (MECA), the 1.1-million-square-foot (100,000 m2) facility has an 18,975-seat arena, a 194,000 sq ft (18,000 m2) exhibition hall, and 62,000 sq ft (5,800 m2) of meeting space.

The complex opened on September 20, 2003 as Qwest Center Omaha, and adopted the name of CenturyLink Center Omaha on July 15, 2011, as part of a $22 billion buyout of Qwest by CenturyLink (formerly CenturyTel). In July 2018, CHI Health bought the naming rights to the arena under a 20-year agreement worth $23.6 million,[5] and the arena was renamed CHI Health Center Omaha effective September 1, that year. Just west of the Missouri River, the elevation at street level is approximately 1,000 feet (300 m) above sea level.

The arena hosts basketball and hockey games, professional wrestling events, concerts, and the annual shareholders' meeting of Omaha-based conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, usually held on the first Saturday of May.

The arena's primary tenant is the Creighton University men's basketball team. Through the 2014–15 NCAA ice hockey season, the Omaha Mavericks men's ice hockey team, representing the University of Nebraska Omaha, was also a primary tenant, but the Mavericks moved to the new Baxter Arena effective with the 2015–16 season.

We look forward to seeing you in Omaha in June 2023!
