About the Conference

The 2024 conference is sure to be one you won’t want to miss! Along with a slate of several relevant presentations, you can look forward to “mousetraps and gadgets” and roundtable discussions. Attendees will have ample time to meet with their peers and many exhibitors.

Note: Attendance to either the workshop or the conference is not necessary to participate in the other.

Vendors

The Iowa Streets and Roads Conference provides vendors with the opportunity to showcase and demonstrate their products. Attendees will primarily be maintenance supervisors and others responsible for maintaining streets and roadways, procuring related equipment and materials, and managing administrative functions.

Display and Setup Information (SEE BIG CHANGES BELOW!)

The display areas consist of an 8′ x 10′ indoor space, with an 8′ table and two chairs plus electricity and wireless internet. NOTE: With the change in location we have some big changes to our vendor space. All equipment brought in by vendors will now be inside the vendor space and enough space will need to be purchased. Special request for Streets and Roads vendors wanting to bring large equipment – Please contact Keith Knapp at kknapp@iastate.edu by May 30th, 2024 so we can work together to create the best layout as possible in the vendor hall. If we don’t hear from you, we will assume your needs will be served by a typical booth. Special instructions for equipment delivery and setup will be forthcoming.

Accommodations

Accommodation details for 2024 will be announced as the event nears.

Registration

Location assignment in the vendor space is based on a first come, first served basis. Reminders to contact us if you are bringing equipment and that space is limited, so register early!
