See, experience, and explore Omaha, Nebraska on this year’s 2.5 day Inter-City Leadership Visit! We’ll leave the morning of Monday, June 17 and return on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 19, 2019.
Omaha, Nebraska is a city similar to Evansville that has undergone a dramatic transformation in the past 20 years. Break-out sessions will allow participants the opportunity to focus on the initiatives embraced by Omaha that are most important to them. Through networking, creative thinking, and discussion among participants, we will bring new and innovative ideas home to Southwest Indiana.
Omaha ranks among the top 10 up-and-coming destinations in 2018, according to TripAdvisor.com. It is known as a mid-sized city with large-sized amenities and is home to five Fortune 500 companies. Industry clusters include financial services, defense, transportation and distribution, manufacturing, and information technology. Our Planning Committee chose Omaha because of its many similarities to our region. In fact, community leaders consider Omaha as an aspirational city and are using it as a benchmark for economic indicators such as employment growth, education, average annual wage, GDP growth rate, etc.
