Media Credentials

*The deadline for media credential requests is January 30 at 8 p.m.

The Iowa Caucus Consortium is your one-stop hub for all Caucus media credentials. We are hosting the Media Filing Center, which is located at the Iowa Events Center and will be open from Friday, January 31 – Tuesday, February 4. Centrally located in downtown Des Moines, this 28,800 square foot space has easy load-in, state-of-the-art AV capabilities and flexible space accommodations to meet your needs. Featuring unique Caucus programming throughout the weekend, this space is perfect for media stand-ups and all your workspace needs.
Even if you don’t plan on purchasing space at the Media Filing Center during your stay, we encourage all media to apply for credentials that will grant access to the Grand Concourse and AARP Power Lounge (pre-function space) at the Iowa Event Center. These spaces will include features such as the State Historical Museum’s “First in the Nation” traveling exhibit, a small step-and-repeat for stand-ups (first-come, first-served) and a lounge space outside of the Media Filing Center. You will also receive access to other forums and events, including the Raucous Before the Caucus Presented by Principal Financial Group®, a premier invite-only event, set to take place on Friday, January 31.
