Lodging for 2018

For our upcoming annual IASB Convention, we have arranged blocks of rooms with area hotels. Make your reservations directly with the hotel. Detailed hotel information is listed below.

Exciting changes to the convention hotel landscape for 2018!

We are excited to offer a new line-up of area hotels with room blocks saved for IASB Convention attendees. Included this year is the brand new downtown Hilton, which is connected to the Iowa Events Center. We have carefully chosen hotels that are close to the convention, for your convenience. You may not see hotels listed that you stayed at during past conventions. While we did not reserve room blocks at any hotels other than those listed, you are welcome to stay anywhere you wish.

Schedule At-a-Glance:

Wednesday, Nov. 14 - Delegate Assembly, School Finance Workshops, and Pre-Convention Workshops (full-day)
Thursday, Nov. 15 - IASB Convention and Trade Show (full-day)
Friday, Nov. 16 - Board Presidents' Workshop (8 a.m.-noon)
 
Book only the rooms you need
In the past, board secretaries have made reservations for the majority of the board and then canceled extra rooms just before convention. IASB has contracted with area hotels to fill a certain number of rooms and must reimburse hotels if the rooms remain empty due to late cancellations. Please book only as many rooms as you need and cancel any rooms you no longer need as soon as possible.
 
Contact your hotel of choice by phone or on the hotel's website
When contacting the hotel, tell them you are with IASB and use any codes listed below. Hotels will ask you for a credit card or deposit to hold your room. Please note that not all hotels allow purchase orders; check with them first. You should receive a confirmation number and a copy of your reservations by mail or email. If using the hotel website to make your reservations a credit card is required. Refer to the detailed hotel information below for phone numbers and links to the websites of participating hotels. In some cases, the links will take you directly to a registration form for rooms that are part of the IASB block at that hotel.
 
Questions or changes
If you have questions or changes to your reservations, please call the hotel directly. The deadline to reserve rooms in the block varies by the hotel (see list below). However, most schools will make reservations this spring, so make your plans early.
 
Cancellations
Note: Each hotel has their own guest room cancellation policy. Check the listing below, then double check with the hotel to ensure you are not charged for a late cancellation.
