Annual Conference Sponsor Opportunities
Sponsor our 2024 Annual Conference!
The Practical Farmers of Iowa Annual Conference will be held Jan. 19-20, 2024, at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, Iowa.
Our new conference center is conveniently located directly off the I-80/I-35 interstate system in Downtown Des Moines. The conference activities will be held on Level 3 of the facility, with same-level parking and loading zones (including a loading dock), and a same-level indoor skywalk system. Visit this webpage for more information on the new location (coming soon).
The exhibit hall will be located on the grand concourse, surrounded on both sides by classrooms holding breakout sessions throughout the weekend.
We have no doubt the ease of access, exhibit hall layout, and our standard schedule including ample time for networking will be an excellent experience for your organization.
As usual, the PFI conference experience includes a wide range of farmer-led educational content and plenty of time for making meaningful connections: 60+ sessions, hundreds of attendees, 90+ exhibitors, and many fun activities.
Contact PFI’s Conference Exhibitor Coordinator Kathy Eastman at email@example.com for assistance.
