The Central Nebraska Regional Airport will open a brand new terminal early in 2016. It offers daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth, twice weekly flights to Las Vegas and Phoenix-Mesa, and new seasonal weekly flights to Orlando. Mainstay Suites opened in 2015 and Candlewood Suites will debut in 2016. The Chocolate Bar is adding a meeting space that will seat up to 200 people, and the new, high-tech Raising Nebraska agricultural exhibit is a one-of-a-kind place to hold your event.
We’ll do whatever it takes within our power for your convention, show, or conference to be successful, from laying groundwork to nit-picking details. Relax; meetings are made easy with your Grand Island hospitality team.
