The Iowa Newspaper Association is excited to announce the program for its 2019 Convention & Trade Show. The event will once again be held at the Downtown Marriott Hotel in Des Moines. This year’s dates are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, February 6-8. This year’s convention is dedicated to the newspaper’s role in our ever-changing media climate. Whether it be a local election, a charity fundraiser or a high school sporting event, newspapers play a key role in educating their readers and bringing attention to topics close to home.

Join us to learn and develop skills to better serve our Iowa communities with quality journalism.The INF Program Committee has once again put together a phenomenal schedule of events and speakers.

As usual, there will be a dynamic trade show featuring the latest and greatest products and services, the popular Wall of Wine & Beer and, of course, prizes! Capping off the convention will be the Friday evening Awards Banquet, where winners in the Better Newspaper Contests will be honored and the 2019 Newspaper of the Year will be announced.

Registration and meal prices remain among the lowest in the nation, making the annual INA Convention an outstanding deal. There’s no other program like this offered at such a reasonable rate!
