Speaking Of Des Moines ...

"Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau is on top of everything new and old in Des Moines. I would recommend Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau to any event planner."

Ms. Martha Munro Event and Membership Director Coalition for Family and Children's Services in Iowa

"We have our best attendance at our meetings when we hold them in the Des Moines area."

Mr. Brian Gay Executive Director Midwest Free Community Papers

"Des Moines is an attractive city for convention. Movement is easy, there are wonderful cultural/artistic venues and costs are reasonable." June 2011

Mr. Mark Babcock Biennial Regional Convention Chair American Guild of Organists

"We truly receive invaluable assistance from the CVB staff--not only during the show, but also during the entire year!"

Ms. Sue Stookey Co-owner at Stookey Companies ArtFest Midwest

"The city of Des Moines, the Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Sports Commission all contributed to making the NCAA Women's Basketball Regional a great success. I had not been to Des Moines in a few years, and the downtown area has added a new vibrancy, some fantastic restaurants and an accommodating feel for visitors. It is truly an undiscovered treasure in the Midwest, but it won't remain that way for long. We were certainly pleased with our event and look forward to Des Moines hospitality in the future."

Mr. Dru Hancock Senior Associate Commissioner Big 12 Conference/NCAA Site Rep
