The Big Omaha Opening Party is at The Slowdown, a venue that’s been a part of the event since year one.
The Silicon Prairie News team has been working hard and reflecting on the experiences of the past four years to make Big Omaha 2013 our best event yet. With a speaker lineup that’s sure to inspire attendees, a freshly remodeled conference home and a few suprises up our sleeve for the commemorative year, we can’t wait to finally share the event’s full schedule.
Below you’ll find our comprehensive agenda, complete with our speaker presentation and party times. As you plan for your days at Big Omaha, know that when the party starts May 8, we don’t quit until the closing party’s last call May 10. We make sure you get the most out of your time and we try our best to keep you engaged and entertained while you’re here with us.
We celebrate and thank our community for helping us grow, and as we reach our five-year milestone, we invite you to discover what we have planned.
For speaker information, make sure to check out the Big Omaha website to read up on the indivduals who are joining us for the two-and-a-half day event.
