On Wednesday at 11 a.m., Big Omaha 2012 tickets go on sale! We couldn't be more excited to continue inspiring, educating and celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship through what's already the fourth year of the event. Big Omaha 2012 will kick off the evening of May 9 and conclude the night of May 11.

We are humbled that since its first year, Big Omaha has continued to sell out – last year, it took only eight days – and with tickets in high demand for this year's event, we're making changes to how we release tickets.

 

Ticket details

We are continually encouraged by how the event transforms our community every year, and as we continue focusing on bringing you the nation's most interconnected conference on innovation and entrepreneurship, we have oriented our ticket prices to support the entrepreneurial spirit and ambition of those the conference was designed for at its inception.

When you make your ticket purchase, you will be presented with an option to select a ticket that best reflects your role in the Big Omaha community. An Established Business/Corporate Ticket will be available for $599, and an Entrepreneur/Startup Ticket will be available for $399.

 

Prairie Pass - New!

On Wednesday, the initial ticket sales will open with an opportunity to purchase a Prairie Pass, our new season pass guaranteeing its purchaser a ticket to both Big Omaha 2012 and Thinc Iowa 2012, two of Silicon Prairie News' premier events. The pass not only guarantees access to both conferences but provides a 10 percent discount off both tickets.

Thinc Iowa 2012, a conference that will begin to present the same focus as Big Omaha, will take place in downtown Des Moines on October 10-11.

Prairie Passes will be sold at two levels, the Established Business/Corporate Prairie Pass for $899, and an Entrepreneur/Startup Prairie Pass for $549.
