The Iowa Events Center is a three venue, state-of-the-art multi-purpose complex located in the heart of downtown Des Moines, IA. The facility hosts many of the area’s biggest conventions and tradeshows, and has become a prime destination for sports and entertainment. Turner Construction, along with a joint venture partner, was the construction manager for the Iowa Events Center. The project had three major pieces; a new arena, new exhibit hall, and the renovation of an existing auditorium. All three are linked together forming the largest multi-purpose facility in the state of Iowa. The facility has over 226,000 SF of combined meeting, exhibit, and ballroom space. Hy-Vee Hall is the state’s largest exhibit hall with 100,000 SF of exhibit space. Wells Fargo Arena is a world-class stage for today’s top entertainment, and serves as the home for many of the area’s professional sports teams, including The Iowa Energy NBA G-League team, Iowa Wild, and the Iowa Barnstormers Arena Football team. The historic Veterans Memorial Auditorium is connected to the new arena through a series of tunnels and skywalks.
