LINCOLN, Neb.-- The grand opening for a brand new Conference Center in Lincoln was open to the public Thursday.
The Conference Center is the first building to be completed as part of the University of Nebraska's Innovation Campus.
The 380,000 square ft. facility features a 400-seat auditorium, eight breakout rooms, and a banquet hall.
The Conference Center will be the only state facility in NIC because it was paid for by a grant.
The next step in the 25-year project is the Food Innovation Center which is scheduled to open in July, 2015. Shortly after that, the Greenhouse Innovation Center will open.
