Program Overview

The people of Iowa are ready to welcome and host your group’s meeting, conference, tradeshow, or exhibition. We’re confident that once you’ve been introduced to the beauty, amenities, and culture of Iowa, you’ll want to return. In fact, we’re so sure you’ll want to come back that we’re willing to offset up to $25,000 of your meeting costs. The Meet in Iowa program, brought to you by the Iowa Economic Development Authority and Iowa Tourism Office, is designed to introduce and incentivize you and your group to discover Iowa. Incentives are available for groups of any size, in communities of any size. All we ask is you stay a night or two. What’s best? As you put together your Request for Proposal (RFP), we can provide you with an estimate of how much you could qualify for under our program. The quality of applications will be judged on event type, out-of-state visitation and economic impact, community partnerships, tourism activity, and the industry you’re inviting to see Iowa. Give one of our beautiful communities the opportunity to win your hearts and business. Questions or ready for the first step? Call us at 515-276-1454 or e-mail Your Iowa adventure awaits.
