“Great venue for just about any event!”
Review of Iowa Events Center

Iowa Events Center
Ranked #29 of 71 things to do in Des Moines
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I have attended concerts, motor cross races, basketball games, hockey games, and Home & Garden shows, and every event that I have been to here has been great! Not a bad seat in the place. Although, they really need to make a run through the stands and fix some seats and arm rests, as some are in need of repairs. The variety of food and drink choices is also good. I wouldn't hesitate in going to The Well for any event.

This is a great place to see a concert. The people here were all very helpful. There's a restaurant here that is great to get reservations at before a show - the prices are reasonable, the food is good. Everyone was pleasant. Parking is close and reasonably priced.

Not sure this would be true if you were in the nosebleed section but the seats in the 100's section all seem pretty good. The sound quality was excellent, video screens were clear and well situated. The flow of people even with large crowds seemed orderly.

I hope this is the Events Center across from the Wells Fargo Arena! I thought the sign on the building read HyVee Events Center! Anyway there are 3 floors to this Center and it was 106 degrees outside, but marvelously COOL INSIDE! We attended the 2012 Natl. Oldsmobile Car Show here and thought this Center very well maintained. There is a sky walk across the street to another building also. The concession stand is small but the lines move quickly and the food was a suprise---pretty good! Plenty of chairs scattered along the walls for us wives who needed to sit and rest while our husbands talked cars! There was also comfortable seating inside the main entrance while waiting on our hotel shuttle bus!
