"Every four years, the national spotlight shines brightly on Iowa and this is our chance to play host to the thousands of media and visitors who come to Greater Des Moines," said Greg Edwards, President & CEO of Catch Des Moines. "The Consortium has become a valuable resource for the media and candidates by connecting them with the people, places and issues."

One of the primary benefits of the Consortium is the establishment of a Media Filing Center, where visiting and local members of the media can set up workspaces for covering the Iowa Caucuses. The filing center will be hosted at the Iowa Event Center and will be open from Friday, January 31 – Tuesday, February 4. "It is an honor for our state and our region to host the Iowa Caucuses," said Jay Byers, CEO of the Greater Des Moines Partnership. "Through this opportunity, we are able to showcase DSM USA to the nation and to the entire world as the best place to live, grow, visit and work."

To further market and support Consortium efforts, iowacaucus.org has been re-established and @iacaucus2020  Twitter and Instagram accounts have been activated along with the hashtag  #iacaucus. The Consortium website provides media resources including credentialing for the Media Filing Center and Caucus events, suggested video and photo backdrops, story starters, photo and b-roll requests. It also boasts a Caucus candidate event calendar and voter information as well as local resources including restaurants and hotels.    

The Iowa Caucus Consortium is currently planning Caucus events for 2019-2020 including a Candidate Forum Series, town-hall style presentations with various major party presidential candidates, Issue Forum Series, events that focus on several key topics important to the upcoming Presidential race, and a CEO Roundtable event.
