Visit Omaha Welcomes Three New Staff Members
8/16/2018
Visit Omaha is pleased to announce the hiring of three new staff members. Jessica Weishahn is the new Tourism Sales Manager, Lindsey Holmes was recently named as the new National Sales Representative, and Melanie Hegwood has joined the Visit Omaha Team as the new Convention Services and Housing Manager.

Lindsey Holmes Holmes, who started her career in the hotel industry as a business travel sales manager, will focus on the religious and west meetings markets.

Jessica Weishahn As the specialist in group tour sales, Weishahn will work with motorcoach groups, military reunions as well as the small meetings market. Both Weishahn and Holmes completed sales training with Master Connection Associates this year.

Melanie Hegwood Hegwood, the new Convention Services and Housing Manager, brings more than a decade of experience in the hotel industry to the organization. In her new role, she will work with meeting and event planners to coordinate their hotel room block and registration needs.

“Our sales team has a wide range of expertise and industry knowledge that our clients can draw upon as we work together to bring more events to Omaha,” said Cathy Keller, Vice President of Sales and Services. “Each of the new staff members will add their experience to the team providing even more creative solutions for our clients.”

Look to the heart and soul of the Midwest to unearth something fresh. Omaha’s downtown convention district is 4.7 miles from the airport, and within a mile of more than 3,000 downtown hotels rooms. The 346,000 sq. ft. convention center, and attached 18,300-seat arena is connected via a glass enclosed skywalk to a 600-room Hilton headquarter hotel and across the street from a 333-room full service Marriott. Omaha’s Old Market Entertainment District, filled with local restaurants, breweries and boutiques, is a short 6 blocks away.

Visit Omaha, also known as the Omaha Convention & Visitors Bureau, is the official tourism authority for the City of Omaha. For more information go to www.visitomaha.com.
