Engage Your Target Audience at Our Trade Show
The IASB Annual Convention and Trade Show is the premier event of the year for governance teams from Iowa public schools. You’re invited to join us Nov. 16–17 as we deliver powerful learning
sessions and a state-of-the-art trade show that provides education leaders with critical resources.
As a provider of school services and supplies, our Trade Show is your best opportunity to meet these education leaders. For 77 years,
the Annual Convention and Trade Show has drawn school board members and school administrators to Des Moines each fall. In 2021, nearly 1,000 Iowa education leaders from 271 school districts, all nine area education agencies and one community college attended the Annual Convention and Trade Show.
