Corporate Meeting and Event space

Situated on the world-class Sculpture Park in downtown Des Moines, the John and Mary Pappajohn Education Center has a convenient location and artistic relevance to the downtown area. The cornerstone of the building has been its involvement in the cultural life of downtown and the Greater Des Moines metro area. The building also hosts the annual Des Moines Arts Festival, 80/35 Music Festival, Celebrasian, Latino Heritage Festival and Des Moines Concours d'Elegance as well as many repeat corporate and educational/nonprofit clients in one of our 13 multi-use spaces throughout the facility. The availability of ample street and ramp parking as well as adjacent artwork provide an inspirational setting for retreats and business meetings! 

The Pappajohn Center is available for Corporate trainings, meetings and retreats. We host a myriad of groups in the downtown business community as well as non-profit organizations with competitive rates and excellent technology along with professional infrastructure. The Center encompasses many diverse spaces that would possibly be a great fit for your next business meeting, luncheon or fundraising event.
