Location & Directions
The new conference venue does not have sleeping rooms attached, so you have numerous options on where to stay! If you are staying at the Embassy Suites or Hotel Fort Des Moines, we will be running a shuttle on a 20-min loop between both locations and the conference venue. Hours for the shuttle are 1/19: 7-10am and 3:15-6:15pm, 1/20: 7-10am and 3:50-6:50pm. There is no shuttle on Sunday, 1/21.
If you are not staying at a hotel and/or would like to drive yourself, feel free to utilize the free parking garage onsite. Click here for detailed driving and parking instructions to the new conference venue! It is highly recommended you use our directions to avoid confusion!
The address of the venue is 1415 Woodland Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50309 – If you are using a GPS, make sure it is taking you to Des Moines instead of West Des Moines, this is a common mistake that will put you about 20 mins away!
Resident Poster Showcase
Registration is open for the Resident Poster Showcase, which will be held on Friday, January 19th! Residents who present a poster get free registration to the conference! Click here to access the brochure and application form. We ask for poster information to be submitted by Monday, January 15th!
Exhibitor and Sponsor Information
We invite your company to be a partner and exhibit your products and services at our 2024 Midwinter Conference. Sponsorships present a great opportunity to get exclusive access to practicing osteopathic physicians from across the Midwest. Participating as a sponsor and/or exhibitor will allow you to reconnect with osteopathic physicians with whom you currently work and build new relationships with physicians, residents, and students.
Check out our Exhibitor Prospectus for information on the sponsorship and exhibitor levels for our 2024 Conference. Our Transporation and Student/Resident Sponsorships are both new this year! Exhibit hall space is very limited, so we encourage you to register ASAP to confirm your spot!
The easiest way to register is through our online registration form. Alternatively, you can fill out a PDF version of the registration form (click here to download) and return it with your payment at your earliest convenience. If needed, we can work with you to complete any grant application requirements that your company may have.
Please reach out to IACOFP staff (515-282-8192) if you have any questions. We want to make sure that we provide you with opportunities that best match your marketing needs, so if you have additional sponsorship proposals or ideas, please let us know.
Thanks for your support of IACOFP and we look forward to seeing you in January!
