The Taking Care of Business conference began today and it's back in Sioux City for the first time since 2006.
The event, hosted by the Iowa Association of Business and Industry, provides a prime opportunity for businesses from across Iowa to collect and share their work and achievements.
ABI has exhibits and activities specifically organized for business leaders to meet and discuss plans for possible collaboration.
The organization is also bringing in famous keynote speakers Dick Vitale, an ESPN analyst; Steve Rizzo,a comedian and motivational speaker; Katherine Button Bell, the Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Emerson; and Johnny Earle, the founder of clothing business "Johnny Cupcakes."
The conference is ultimately a great chance for Sioux City to step up and showcase itself to businesses looking to expand their reaches in developing cities.
