Convention

Directly connected to Wells Fargo Arena by the skywalk system, both Hy-Vee Hall and Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center provide unlimited space options for trade shows, exhibits, meetings, and more—all under one roof. Not to mention we are tax-exempt!

Hy-Vee Hall is home to eight meeting rooms that can be used for trainings, meetings, and break out sessions as well as three exhibit halls that when combined total 150,000 square feet of space.

Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center, is home to 21 meeting rooms located on the grand concourse. This recently renovated space can be closed off to create separate rooms or the walls can be collapsed to create one large open space. Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center is also home to Veterans Memorial Hall, a museum-quality exhibit featuring eight different kiosks that honor the service men and women of Iowa. On the newly added fourth level, the state's largest ballroom can be found. This 28,800 square foot space is an ideal space for galas, weddings, and trade shows.
