VENUES

Denim Headquarters - Opening Reception

700 Locust Street Suite 304 Des Moines, IA 50309

Located in the heart of Downtown Des Moines on the skywalk level of the Partnership Building, the Denim headquarters is designed to be open and inviting. The Denim bar is a place where insurance, financial services, and technology leaders can gather to collaborate, co-create, and advance the fintech and insurtech conversation in Des Moines and beyond.

River Center

River Center - Denim Summit 2018

340 SW 3rd Street Des Moines, IA 50309

Rich with Des Moines history, the River Center building in Downtown Des Moines was originally constructed in 1915 as the third expansion of the Des Moines Brewing Company complex. In 2017, the space was transformed into a state-of-the-art event venue known as the River Center. The space was designed to honor the history of the building, featuring high ceilings, exposed brick walls, and reclaimed wood - the perfect setting for Denim Summit 2018. 

PRICE

An all-access pass is only $95. 

In addition to all educational sessions, your ticket includes access to the opening reception at the Denim headquarters on Oct. 24, as well as breakfast and lunch at the River Center on Oct. 25.
