Event Details

The third annual Iowa Ideas Conference is scheduled for October 3 & 4 in downtown Cedar Rapids. A limited number of tickets are available now for ONLY $100.  Event organizers have revealed the return of attendee favorites, along with exciting additions for the 2019 event.

But first….what is Iowa Ideas? Iowa Ideas is a nonpartisan, statewide initiative to gather people from various perspectives and discuss issues impacting the state—now and into the future.

Iowa Ideas Conference attendees are able to customize their conference experience to fit their own interests, moving between tracks while networking with people of varying backgrounds. Collaborations with several community groups has allowed the return of the Young Professional and Diversity & Inclusion sessions that will be represented throughout the tracks.

Tracks this year include:

-          Agriculture

-          Diversity & Inclusion

-          Education

-          Energy & Environment

-          Health Care

-          Human & Social Services

-          Infrastructure

-          Policy

-          Regional Development

-          Workforce

-          Young Professional

Attendees will have several opportunities to gather as one large group throughout the day and half. Attendees will begin their day with an opening keynote on Thursday morning that will offer a message of inspiration and best bets for making the most out of the entire conference experience. The group will reconvene as a whole for the lunch keynote, which will offer thoughtful insight on Iowa’s past, present and future. Thursday night, attendees will be welcome to attend a variety of evening activities, including the very popular “Pints and Politics” event which is held throughout the year by The Gazette and Iowa Public Radio, and broadcast live on Ben Keiffer’s “River to River” program.

Session structure will include a panel and moderator format, encouraging audience participation. Session topics are underway, with over 200 panelists identified by peers in their field thanks to our new advisory councils.

New in 2019: The Iowa Ideas Conference will have a variety of sessions that will qualify for SHRM Professional Development Credits (PCP’s). Information on qualified sessions will be available soon!
