Big Omaha 2012 preview site is live with schedule and hotel details!

Big Omaha 2012 preview website is by Oxide Design, our design partner since our inaugural year in 2009.

We’re beyond excited to reveal the new look of Big Omaha with the launch of today’s preview website. For us, this marks a collaborative effort from our team and creative partners, and we are thrilled to share the branding pieces behind this year’s event.

Thanks to Oxide Design, our branding and identity partner, we’re pushing things far beyond the pastures and doing something daring this year. Their design work takes the iconic Big Omaha bovine to the next level in a bold and personal way. We hope you enjoy the big twist!

In addition to the newly blushed site, we’re thrilled to finally share the video work of the Malone & Company team with you. In the highlight video they’ve put together with footage from the 2011 event, you’ll notice a focus towards intimacy and relationships – a theme that consistently speaks to the heart of the Big Omaha experience and something which is reflected in this year’s design elements. 

We’re looking to continue this theme while further inspiring, educating and celebrating entrepreneurship in the fourth year of the conference which will kick off the evening of May 9. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, March 21, so make sure to mark your calendar!

We’re working on confirming speakers as well as additional details as we write this post, and we’ll be providing more news soon. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peak at the overview of the full schedule for this year’s event. Take a look at the outline below for all the Big Omaha activities and a list of our suggested hotels.

We’re excited to have you join us in May, and we are encouraged by how the event transforms our community each and every year!
