The 26th BIENNIAL OMAHA PRODUCTS SHOW for business and industry is considered one of the largest and diversified business expos in the Midwest.  The Products Show is both a marketplace and technical center, where suppliers and vendors will be able to display their products, materials, and services for area users and buyers.

Robert P. "Bob" Mancuso, CEO of Mid-America Expositions, Inc., the Show Producer, said the 26th Biennial Show, September 2-3, 2015, at the CenturyLink Center Omaha, is the largest business and industrial expo in the State of Nebraska and one of the largest in the Midwest for 2015.

The diversity of the products and services on display at the CenturyLink Center Omaha, as well as the convenience of finding vendors in one place, makes the OMAHA PRODUCTS SHOW a great showcase for Midwest industry, alternating with other PRODUCTS SHOWS - NEBRASKA (LINCOLN, Grand island), Sioux Falls, and Iowa (DES MOINES, Cedar Falls).   

Mancuso, who in 1965, originated the OMAHA PRODUCTS SHOW, lined up the sponsor - the Institute of Supply Management – formerly the National Association of Purchasing Management –Nebraska.  "This sponsorship brings the purchasing managers from hundreds of companies to the show – as customers as well as attendees from a regional marketing area around Nebraska."

The OMAHA PRODUCTS SHOW held at the CenturyLink Center Omaha with free admission and over 4,500 parking spots will distribute over 100,000 admission tickets by personal invitation for businesses and industry to attend the two day event.

Bob Mancuso, Jr., CFO at Mid-America Expositions, Inc. and Show Director said, "The Products Show is ideal for the user, the buyer, and the seller. It is a win-win-win situation for all involved in being a part of the Show.  The EXPO gives attendees the opportunity to see the latest in creativity and technology.  It affords the opportunity for those coming to the Show to see hundreds of products and services that can be used in day to day operations, and to see those products and services in one location and under one roof.  Visitors will see demonstrations, collect literature, compare prices, and become acquainted with new suppliers all at one time."

Back at the Products Show is the Technology Pavilion and the Safety, Health, and Wellness Pavilion.  These Pavilion’s aim to showcase the improvements and new products in those areas.  The Products Show Summit – which is the seminar forum - will highlight seminars on business topics as well as industrial sessions.

Also back is the Job & Career Pavilion.  In this area – we are really excited to bring this job and career fair to the Omaha workforce - those looking for jobs, looking for changes, and looking to go back to school to learn new skills and increase their education. 

The Institute of Supply Management (National Association of Purchasing Management)– Nebraska Chapter will hold their monthly meeting at the Show.   Tim Scharnhorst, President of the Nebraska Association, said, “Our members look forward to the Products Show and we will be holding our monthly meeting at the Show.”

Bob Mancuso, Jr. said, “The biennial Omaha Products Show this year presents a hands on educational opportunity for company personnel involved in the procurement process, including Management, Purchasing, Architects, Contractors, Engineering, Production, Packaging, Quality Control, Government, Construction, Maintenance, as well as Office Personnel, for them to condense a learning process of weeks and sometimes even months, into a short span of two days.  Opportunities to view new products and services, visit with current and prospective suppliers, and set future appointments are just a few of the benefits which the show offers.  The Omaha Products Show is the place to be on September 2 and 3, 2015!”

The Products Show officially opens at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, September 2.  The Opening Luncheon is at 11:30 am.  The luncheon is open to the public.  The show then opens at 1:00 pm continues until 6 PM.  The Show re-opens on Thursday, September 3, at 10 AM and is open until 3 PM.
