If you are an entrepreneur, you have probably have attended some kind of conference before. Perhaps you go for the connections. Or the content. Or to get away from the wife/husband/kids/girlfriend/puppy.

But, have you ever thought about what it takes to put on a conference? How the business works? What makes for a successful conference? Perhaps you are thinking about trying your hand at creating your own conference or are just curious like me….so today I’ve brought in the big gun.

Jeff Slobotski is the founder of , which is a hugely successful tech and entrepreneurship conference here in the Midwest and . In this interview, Jeff and I discuss:

-The Big Omaha story: Where the idea came from

-How he got started in the conference business

-Keys to success and pitfalls

-How a conference makes money and his business model

-The key to marketing and promoting a conference

-How Big Omaha landed killer speakers

…and much more…

My hope here is even if you aren’t planning to start your own conference, that there are takeaways here relevant to your biz. Which begs the question: What did you find the most interesting and applicable to your business in this interview with Jeff? What were your takeaways?
