Set your schedule: Thinc Iowa Opening Party is Oct. 9

Thinc Iowa starts the minute we open the doors for the opening party Oct. 9. Make sure you’re there to start the conference off right.

Part of what makes our Thinc Iowa conference more than a conference is the time around the keynotes. In these moments, magic happens – people connect, inspiration strikes and ideas mature. The first opportunity for that magic is Oct. 9 at our Thinc Iowa Opening Party with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

The venue for this party is Wooly’s, a music hot spot in the historic East Village of downtown Des Moines. As you’ll see in the pictures (below), we’re especially excited about this venue as its vibe fits the hand-sketched, ornate details of the Thinc Iowa brand.

If you’re a Thinc Iowa badge holder, you’ll have the opportunity to pick up your lanyard and registration information at the start of the party, 8-10 p.m. (Attendees: More information on registration to come via email.) If you’re not a badge holder, don’t fret. This party is open to the public, but there’s still time to purchase a ticket to attend the full conference.

Big thanks to the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
