Students will have the opportunity to be involved in an annual event, The Conference, that will be designed and implemented by Event Management students for the ISU and Ames communities. The Conference's inaugural event was in November 2019 and was centered on all aspects of innovation and creativity, which included opening remarks from President Wendy Wintersteen, a pitch competition with over $1,000 in prizes, break out sessions, and a keynote presentation for over 150 attendees.
