This is a great opportunity for those that are staying an extra day or two to visit the area and see a top notch operation. Details and maps will be provided in the conference program and on the Whova App. OHHH, added bonus - Omaha Nebraska is a fun place with many things to visit. Stay an extra day or three and enjoy!
Traveling Tips from Jen and Gina ~ We had the chance to explore Lincoln and Omaha for five days in August of 2019. We had a blast! There is so much to do in both cities we couldn't get to everything. We suggest you come in a day or two early or stay a day or two after the conference to enjoy the area. The companions get to explore Omaha for one day, but there is no time on the agenda to get to the Omaha Zoo. We had the chance to briefly explore it and both decided we have to go back with more time. Trust us on this, you'll be glad you stayed a couple of extra days. Ohhh, and bring comfortable shoes!
