Planners can also look into the schedule
of events at U.S. Cellular Center, which hosts
Cedar Rapids Titans indoor football games.
An outing to a Titans game is convenient if
the group is housed at the 267-room DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cedar Rapids Convention Complex, which is attached to the U.S.
Cellular Center. Together, the facilities boast
more than 80,000 square feet of meeting and
banquet space for up to 10,000 attendees.
Dubuque is also home to ticketed sporting
events, particularly collegiate options at
Loras College, Clarke University and the University of Dubuque.
It also boasts the popular Field of Dreams
movie site, where Kronlage said groups can
arrange interaction with baseball players,
many of whom were in the movie, and learn
what it was like to be a part of making a famous movie as well as more about America’s
favorite pastime. Tours and on-site food and
beverage service are available.
Groups visiting Quad Cities could arrange
a visit to Modern Woodmen Park, the historic home of the Quad Cities River Bandits
Minor League Baseball team located in Davenport, Iowa, on the banks of the Mississippi
“Visit Quad Cities can work with the
stadium staff to have an organization’s logo
on the scoreboard, to throw a first pitch or
participate in between-inning on-field contests,” Hunt said.
She added that TBK Bank Sports Complex
in Bettendorf, Iowa, is a new year-round
indoor sports and entertainment facility that
includes meeting space, various courts, sand
volleyball, a tiki bar, concessions and High 5
Lanes & Games, which features a full arcade,
two escape rooms and laser tag.
In Iowa City, home of the Big Ten’s University of Iowa Hawkeyes, groups can watch
athletic events all year, including basketball
at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
“Historic Kinnick Stadium holds 70,000
football fans with availability for group
tickets and a pre-game catered tailgate party
for your group,” Shymansky added. “The
press box at Kinnick is a tremendous venue
to host off-site meetings, networking events
and banquets for up to 250 people. You get
a great view of the field and food options are
plenty, from stadium fare to a five-course
banquet-style plated dinner.”
And in Waterloo, Keeney said group tick-
eting is available for Waterloo Bucks baseball
games at Riverfront Stadium.
