The Iowa Bankers Association will be doing a buyout of the Wi-Fi in the Iowa Events Center so we will provide everyone with complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the convention. The network name and password will be provided for use on-site. The Wi-Fi is meant for light browsing, email, etc., if you have essential functions in your booth that require internet (videos, programs, streaming, etc.) it is recommended that you still purchase a hard wire connection through the Iowa Event Center Exhibitor Services.
Monday, September 18 • 7:30 a.m.
