23rd Annual Upper Midwest Convention and Visitors Bureau Fall Conference

UMCVB 2020 Cancelled


After very careful consideration, we have decided to cancel this year’s UMCVB Fall Conference which was originally scheduled to take place this September in Des Moines.  We considered going ahead with the conference, however after numerous conversations with many of you, our potential attendees, it became clear that most would not be able to attend the conference this year due to travel or budget restrictions.  We know how important it is to focus on recovery and the marketing of your destination at this time; and we want to be sensitive to the impact COVID-19 has had on our industry.

We want to thank Catch Des Moines and Hilton Des Moines Downtown for being wonderful partners and working with us to reschedule the conference in Des Moines for 2021!

Save the Date: September 12-15, 2021 in Des Moines, IA
