The Faithwalkers Midwest Conference will begin at 7:00pm on Saturday, December 29 and will end at 9:00pm on Monday, December 31st. Registration will be open 3pm-7pm in the lobby of the Iowa Events Center.

You are responsible for reserving your own housing accomodations, however we have reserved discounted blocks at the following hotels under the name “Faithwalkers” for your convenience. To reserve a room on one of the blocks, please contact the hotel directly. You are welcome to stay at any hotel outside of those listed, as there are many more in the Des Moines Area.

Skywalk: Most of these hotels are connected to the Iowa Events Center directly via the skywalk, so you will not have to go outside in order to travel to and from your hotel from the conference. 

Disclaimer: All rates are subject to availability. Please call the hotel to confirm and mention that you are with the Faithwalkers Midwest Conference. It is best to book your rooms as soon as possible before room blocks have filled up each year.
