"Kelly and I think we made the right decision in still having our wedding and reception. We could have postponed it like so many other couples are doing this spring and summer, but it was good to see co-workers, who may or may not have been furloughed, working again because of our wedding day. In the end they are part of the great team at the Iowa Events Center." ~Brandon Our assistant ticket office manager, Brandon, got married at the Iowa Events Center last week! Hear his experience hosting a safe, socially distanced wedding at the facility on our facebook page, Facebook.com/IowaEventsCenter . Congrats, Brandon! 💍 🤵 👰 #IECWeddings

We decided to mute our social media channels last week so we could take time to learn, listen and reflect on how we can be a better champion for equality and meaningful change in our community. We stand with our staff, partners and neighbors in condemning racism, hatred and injustice and are committed to amplifying the voices of the Black Lives Matter movement. Each month we like to provide you with a list of upcoming events at our facility, but this month these events focus on easy resources for educating yourself and making sure your mind is clear so together we can continue fighting for real, systemic change. Have any other suggestions for us? We would love for you to drop them in the comments below.
We’ve missed you, and are ready to create exceptional experiences for you once more. As of June 1, the Iowa Events Center is open at 50% capacity while following social distancing and other health regulations. As always, our priority is the health and safety of everyone who enters our facility. We are taking every measure to ensure that we provide the best space for your event. Our team is continuing to implement all recommended practices to create a safe and healthy environment. We will continue to update our social media and IowaEventsCenter.com with all of our safety measures and provide updates on upcoming events. If you are looking for a large space to host your socially distanced event, please send us a message. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
