Convention Center

CHI Health Center Omaha is the centerpiece of downtown Omaha’s $2 billion riverfront revitalization. It’s a hybrid facility that offers the versatility of over 346,000 square feet of convention center space with an 18,300-seat attached arena, making it a top choice for event and meeting planners. The convention center at CHI Health Center Omaha consists of 194,000 square feet of contiguous exhibition space, more than 63,000 square feet of meeting space including 16 meeting rooms, a 30,996 square foot ballroom and an extra 79,400 square feet of pre-function space. A glass-enclosed skywalk links the convention center to the 600-room AAA Four Diamond Hilton Omaha with an additional 15 meeting rooms, creating a convenient enhancement to our convention facilities.

Now open, the $205 million project in Downtown Omaha includes a full-service, 333-room Marriott Hotel located directly across from CHI Health Center Omaha. The 14-story, 333-room Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District has 17,500 square feet of flexible meeting space, a restaurant, two bars and a rooftop swimming pool. More than 3,000 hotel rooms, representing a variety of national chains, are available within a 3-mile radius.


I absolutely love hosting our events at the CHI Health Center Omaha. Our attendees receive first class experiences in a state-of-the-art convention center. It truly is a staple in Omaha and I am honored that my guests are able to be a part of it. My contacts at MECA have not only become my most valued partners, but friends as well.  I know we are in good hands the second we step foot in the building. I am beyond grateful for their tireless efforts to align with our company and produce exceptional events. – Supportworks, Inc.

We held our annual banquet for 1,750 guests at the CHI Health Center this spring. The venue was spacious creating ample room to move between dinner tables which also allows for growing our future attendance. The food was excellent and many of our guests spoke of the friendly and accommodating staff. All in all, it was a first-rate experience. We look forward to returning next year. – Assure Women’s Center
