Caesars Entertainment is now managing and operating the Mid-America Center, a convention center in Council Bluffs, Iowa, that neighbors Caesars, Harrah's and Horseshoe hotel-casino properties. The Mid-America Center, which is just five minutes from Omaha, Neb., offers a 30,000-square-foot, pillar-free arena that can seat up to 9,000 people for concerts and offers 12 luxury suites. The convention center has more than 24,000 square feet of exhibition space and a ballroom that exceeds 23,000 square feet, as well as eight meeting rooms. The venue is now part of the Meetings and Events at Caesars collection, which means planners can combine its use with spaces at other Caesars properties in the Council Bluffs area.
