MBI Annual Winter Conference

February 27 – March 1, 2017
Prairie Meadows Events & Conference Center
1 Prairie Meadows Drive
Altoona, Iowa

The MBI Annual Winter Conference offers two full days of educational sessions and popular annual events, which are sure to attract all aspects of the construction industry.  This year’s learning opportunities include a great combination of sessions focused on leadership and project management on Tuesday, as well as the annual Safety Day of training on Wednesday.  There is something for everyone, from the construction worker, to the President and CEO of a company.  Great values can be found at this popular annual event!

The conference is now known around the Midwest for more than just training.  The annual trade show and awards presentations have become must-attend events.  This year’s awards presentations feature special keynote speakers Pamela Mumm, J.R. Martinez and Bobby Bowden.  Be sure to check out more information about these presentations in the conference brochure and register early before they sell out!

The Annual Winter Conference is well-worth an investment of your time and resources.  Please plan to attend and participate with others from your company, to learn, network and of course, have some fun!

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Prairie Meadows Hotel for your convenience.  This block of special room rates will expire on February 3rd, so be sure to make your reservations at your earliest convenience before the hotel sells out.  For more information on how to reserve a room, go to page 47 of the conference brochure.

Due to the special pricing structure of the Annual Winter Conference, online registration is not available for the classes nor for the awards events.  You are able to register online for the MBI Membership Meeting and/or the Construction Industry Reception (registration links below).
