Des Moines. The Ss are silent. Our city is buzzing. When you come to Greater Des Moines, you’ll notice the buzz. Our restaurants are sizzling. Our attractions are electric. Our trails go whooshing by. Our art scene generates applause. Greater Des Moines is the fastest-growing metro in the Midwest for good reason. It’s culture without the cost. Art without the attitude. Travel without the traffic. Walkable without the worry. We’re a clean, safe, inclusive, and fun destination that offers all of the adventure without the risk, but all the rewards. Ask your fellow planners about holding an event in Greater Des Moines and you’ll hear praise like, “no shortage of things to do.” Or that Des Moines is a “friendly, walkable and safe city with art around every corner.” With a centralized location, 13,000 hotel rooms, 20+ direct flights, 226,000 square feet of meeting space at the Iowa Events Center, a four-mile skywalk and walkable downtown, we’re where functional meets aspirational. Let us be your muse. Plan your event today and catch what you’ve been missing at catchdesmoines.com.
