Thompson Center voted Best Of ... Again

The Thompson Center at UNO is pleased to announce that it has been voted Best Reception Venue in Omaha Magazine’s Best of Omaha 2016 contest, our second consecutive such honor!
“Thank you to all of our guests for again voting The Thompson Center as Omaha’s best reception venue,” said Director Steven Summers. “It is a credit to our wonderful staff and fantastic venue that we were recognized for this honor. “We’re spending the first part of next year renovating the Thompson Center and implementing a dramatic and beautiful update to decor throughout the facility, audio-visual and lighting upgrades, and a new conference room. We believe the best is yet to come!”
