The 30th annual Iowa Downtown Conference was held August 2-4 in Mason City, Iowa. The event is the premier statewide annual conference for professionals and volunteers involved in downtown revitalization in Iowa and neighboring states. I was honored to present during a break out session on Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube best practices for organizations and events.
The Iowa Downtown Conference provided opportunities for attendees to make new connections, hear about the latest trends, acquire practical information and ideas, and learn strategies that are relevant to rural, mid-sized and urban communities and urban districts. Those who attended enjoyed a unique meeting experience and took away the essential tools that are helpful in local efforts to address downtown development issues, historic commercial district vibrancy and competitiveness.
