ASABE's Technical Session Presenter Policy
As a registered and scheduled presenter in a technical session at the meeting, you are confirmed to present your talk.  If you do not present at the time and location of the session, your presentation will be marked as a NO-SHOW.  This is for all technical sessions, both oral and poster sessions.  Being marked as a NO-SHOW for your presentation will increase the likelihood that any future presentations you submit will not be accepted by the session organizers.  Providing a well-organized session on topics relevant to our membership is a priority for the quality of meetings that are expected from ASABE.

CIRCULAR BIOECONOMY SYSTEMS

OMAHA

OMAHA!! Bring the family and enjoy all that Omaha has to offer!

Named after a Native American Tribe, Omaha means "Those going against the wind or current." The city proudly continues to live up to this name, ever changing and expanding to meet expectations and set new trends.  Omaha's entertaining neighborhoods pepper the city with friendly neighborhood eateries, live music, quirky shops and memorabilia from a rich history. From historic and urban chic to scrumptious and hip, there is something unique to see and do in every corner of the city.  Street musicians and artists offer entertainment as you wander in and out of the many boutiques and galleries that line the cobblestone streets. Innovative restaurants, original steakhouses, local pubs, quaint cafes and jazz clubs make the Old Market a great stop for dining when visiting Omaha.

The expanded and revitalized Turner Park is Midtown Crossing's centerpiece green space. Located near the Hilton it is easy to walk there and experience this city park that is a popular venue for more than 150 community events each year.

The Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium redefines the term "zoo" by dedicating resources to saving and protecting species around the world. Walk through the world's largest indoor desert and the largest indoor rainforest in North America. Explore exotic locations and underground caves to see thousands of animals from across the globe in their natural habitat. And take advantage of one of our Behind-the-Scenes Zoo Experiences offered as Tours & Activities.

The RiverFront, a huge transformational development, combines three public parks into one identity. The newly reopened Gene Leahy Mall in the heart of downtown includes exciting amenities like a Performance Pavilion, state-of-the-art playground, interactive water features, Sculpture Garden, and plenty more spaces to gather, relax and have fun.
