The Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau is asking for help in nominating Greater Des Moines for Midwest Meeting magazine's "Favorite Midwest City to Meet In" award. To nominate Des Moines, residents are encouraged to visit the magazine's website and provide a quick summary of why Greater Des Moines is the best metropolitan area in which to plan a convention or meeting. Nominations will be accepted through Oct. 31. The four cities with the most nominations will move on to the voting round, which kicks off Nov. 11 on Midwest Meeting's Facebook page. The winning city will receive exposure to meeting and event planners through a four-page spread in the spring issue of the publication.
