“Attending the conference over the last several years has been an incredible experience. The range of speakers provides valuable insights and inspires me. Speaking at the conference in 2023 allowed me to share my expertise and connect with professionals. As a sponsor this year, we look forward to showcasing our brand and supporting the community. The networking opportunities are always unparalleled, leading to collaborations and friendships. The conference always exceeds my expectations."

"I really enjoyed attending the Central Iowa Business Conference last year! I gained a lot of inspiration from the speakers, got a chance to connect with old friends and meet new connections, and left feeling motivated to put to action some of the takeaways I got! Specifically, I learned some new sales and prospecting language, implemented some new client relations and employee relations practices, and met over a dozen new people, several of whom I’m still in contact with!"
