Things to do in Omaha
Omaha, Nebraska is a popular destination for meeting planners who are looking for a walkable riverfront downtown with an array of entertainment. There are so many things to do in Omaha for corporate group visits! Stay at one of many hotels near popular restaurants and outdoor activities.
The Omaha area hosts events at the convention center offering 194,000 square feet of exhibit space. A perfect venue for groups large or small. Best Corporate Events provides industry-leading Omaha team building activities that will forge deeper bonds among members of your group.
This December we look forward to two fun programs in Omaha when we meet two companies who wanted to give back to local charities and those in need. 160 people will participate in Mini Golf Build & Food Donation at the Omaha Marriot Downtown.
In this program, your group will design and build unique, one-of-a-kind mini-golf holes to create one big miniature golf course where all participants will play when completed. Green carpeting is provided as the putting surface and canned goods, boxed goods, and other building materials are provided to create bumpers, turns, and special obstacle challenges. Creativity, resource management, and teamwork all come into play in this engaging charity event.
Teammates will work together on the concept, construction, theme, and rules of their hole as well as choosing various roles such as golfers, scorekeepers, and course officials. With officials ensuring that the rules of each hole are adhered to, the competition begins! Both newcomers and experienced golfers can enjoy this fun event and the winning team will be anyone’s guess!
Once the tournament is complete, the groceries will be boxed and presented to a local food bank. Your team will feel a sense of accomplishment and the joy that comes from giving to those less fortunate.
Next, 130 participants from another company will experience Build-a-Wheelchair® at the Embassy Suites Downtown. Build-a-Wheelchair® is a corporate social responsibility program born out of a desire to help American veterans and others with various mobility challenges. In this fun and worthwhile program, groups use teamwork skills and iPads® activities to earn the materials necessary to assemble, test and decorate these new wheelchairs for donation. Artistic notes of encouragement are designed and attached. The focal point of this CSR event is to benefit the countless people who, with your generous donation, will be gifted with these beautiful, brand new wheelchairs.
Be sure to explore the city before or after your team building activities. Omaha is known for its pioneer history, museums, and cultural centers.
