The annual SMART Economic Development Conference is Iowa's largest annual conference devoted to economic development. The conference, now in its 29th year, is co-sponsored by the investor-owned electric and natural gas companies of the Iowa Utility Association (IUA) and by the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA). The conference annually attracts approximately 500 economic development professionals, business leaders, chamber of commerce executives, community leaders, elected officials and other board members who influence economic development and public policy issues statewide and within their own communities. Now in its 29th year, the SMART Conference includes general sessions, workshops and networking opportunities. Speakers and workshops throughout the day address topics critical to economic development including local government financing, workforce, community improvement, marketing, entrepreneurialism, tourism and preparing a community for growth.
