We're looking back at our favorite moments from 2019! 🌟 In September we hosted the PEO International Sisterhood Convention's 150th anniversary and served our largest dinner to date. PEO was an event that was near and dear to our hearts because we had initially booked it 10 years ago. We pulled out all the stops to make their 150th birthday unforgettable! #MyIEC
We're looking back at the top moments from 2019! 🌟 . Hosting the 2019 USA Gymnastics Championships, which included acrobatic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, and trampoline and tumbling. The event spanned across all facilities at the Iowa Events Center. #MyIEC
We're looking back at our favorite moments from 2019! 🌟 . Hosting the Iowa Democrats Liberty & Justice Dinner and candidate rallies Nov. 1. All democratic candidates were here and had the opportunity to speak in front of a crowd at Wells Fargo Arena. Each candidate also hosted a rally for their supporters, which covered almost every inch of the Iowa Events Center. It was so cool seeing so many energized people in our facility! #MyIEC
We're looking back at some of our favorite moments from 2019! 🌟 The Lana Del Rey concert took place in the ballroom of Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in November. The show sold out in 1 day and marked just the 3rd concert we've held up there. This was a night to remember! #MyIEC 📷 : @reesestrickland
Congrats to sales manager Janelle on being named December's Employee of the Month! ⭐ Janelle booked and organized several big events in November including our self-promoted Iowa's Premier Beer, Wine & Food Expo as well as the Iowa Democratic Dinner and candidate rallies. Her attention to detail and creativity in using all aspects of our venue made the events successful. If that wasn't enough, she's been busy preparing for the Iowa Caucuses and Media Filing Center coming up early next year. Keep up the good work Janelle, thanks for being one of our #SpectraGREATS!
Holiday sweaters, a good photo backdrop and amazing people are the keys to a successful party! Our Catering team had a blast celebrating their staff at the annual F&B Holiday Party ✨🎄
