Conference Registration Opens Feb. 22

February 9, 2018 | A shared identity: Eastern Iowa unites to create Creative Corridor

Iowa’s premier business conference may be four months away, but registration opens later this month — and there are plenty of reasons to register early:

  1. Receive the early bird discount. Those who sign up during the first few weeks of registration receive a deep discount on the price. Saving money on rich programming and valuable networking? That’s a no-brainer.
  2. Ensure your spot at our alternate activities. Each year, ABI offers unique opportunities to participate in behind-the-scenes tours of local companies, golf at world-class courses and find a variety of other fun activities. However, spots fill up quickly. Sign up early to ensure you’re able to attend the activities of your choice.
  3. Select your top workshops. The 2018 Taking Care of Business Conference will have 19 workshops offering expert advice on everything from cybersecurity to workplace well-being. These workshops are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Once you’ve registered, or even before, make sure to book your hotel room. Space is filling up fast. Two of the conference hotels, the Coralville Marriott and Homewood Suites, are sold out. But don’t worry; there are plenty of great rooms at the other conference hotel, Radisson Coralville. Visit to learn more.
