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
