About Mid-America Center

The newly renovated Mid-America Center now joins the top tier of cities in meeting space, amenities, and distinction. Extending East and South of the Missouri River, the city of Council Bluffs has joined Omaha’s Metro region and become part of its prosperous community. For years, Iowa has struggled to accommodate the entertainment needs of the public. It was at that time that the Mid-America Center was built. Breaking ground in 2000, doors opened to the public on October 18th, 2002, as locals know it, The MAC welcomed audiences of all types. Just five short minutes from downtown Omaha, the Mid-America Center is easily accessible to travelers from both sides of the river. Conveniently located, the Mid-America Center hosts access to major interstates and highways making the ease of travel, one less thing to worry about. The multi-purpose venue offers nearly 64,000 square feet of spacious exhibition meeting space along with a 30,000 state-of-the-art arena ideal for large gatherings, community events and some of today’s hottest music acts. Highlighting family entertainment, world-renowned acts such as the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Tangier Shrine Circus and Monster Jam have filled wall to wall with high octane levels of energy and excitement. Create an intimate get-together in one of the twelve luxurious suites and let our superior staff take care of everything else.
