Meetings & Events

Diversified Management Services has more than 20 years of experience facilitating national, regional, and local events. We have experience in creating meetings and events that stay true to you no matter your event type: large conference, corporate retreat, trade show with continued education, small donor event, or board meeting. Let us help plan your next event!

Meeting Your Expectations

Conducting quality meetings is a benefit for your membership and is essential for a thriving organization. Throughout the year, Diversified Management Services organizes events that range in size from 50 to more than 50,000 attendees. Whatever your organization’s need and goals, we are experts in creating meetings and events that stay true to you.

No matter the event type—large conference, trade show with education tracks, small donor event, or quarterly board meeting—we manage all logistical aspects. including: on-site management, registration, promotion, and speaker coordination. We’ll set budget and agenda; promote the event; coordinate registration, speakers, and fee collection; manage the event on site; and survey participants to see how we can improve the event in the future. For larger conferences or multiday events, we conduct contract negotiations for all aspects of the meeting including hotel, food and beverage, entertainment, and speaker contracts.

Have It Handled

In addition to providing meeting and event planning services, Diversified Management Services provides meeting space to its clients at its West Des Moines headquarters. Our facility is available for meetings of all kinds and includes two fully furnished boardrooms and a flexible event space that can be used in any number of ways, from a classroom to a reception area.


Our biggest concern at first was handing over responsibility to anyone outside of our organization—would you make that responsibility your own, could you be trusted and held accountable. We could not have been more pleased at the way DMS took ownership of their assignments and took on an attitude of professional teamwork. They made our staff feel that they were fully invested in the outcome of our events and eventually earned a spot as family members within our organization.
