About the Expo

The Land Investment Expo started 10 years ago, hoping to attract high-level interest from Iowa and possibly surrounding states. From that initial gathering, we grew the Expo into a local, regional, and eventually national event. Today, the Land Investment Expo is recognized as a national and global leader in bringing fresh topics, ideas and speakers to the forefront of land investing and ownership.

The Expo is the nation’s premier agricultural real estate conference with in-depth programming that attracts more than 650 attendees to West Des Moines, Iowa. Entering its 11th year, the Land Expo features keynotes by some of the most recognizable names in the industry, with multiple breakout sessions and a one-of-a-kind forum for discussions related to the farm economy, land values and investment vehicles for investing in land.

The 11th Annual Land Investment Expo will be held on Friday, January 26, 2018 at the West Des Moines Sheraton Hotel. For more information, please contact Becky Rozenboom at 855.800.5263 or

The quality of speakers and subject matter presented at the 2017 Land Expo provided excellent information for anyone looking at investing or currently investing in the farmland asset class.

Less than two weeks after the event and we had already put a deal together with someone we met at the Expo. There are a couple others that will likely turn into a deal throughout the year.

Map Of My Kingdom

This year's Land Investment Expo registration includes a complimentary performance of 'Map of My Kingdom' – a one-act play addressing the critical issue of land transition. Many farmers and landowners are set to retire in the coming two decades. Preparation needs to begin now for the billions of dollars in generational transfers set to roil markets. Please plan on joining us on Thursday, January 25th prior to the Pre-Expo Reception for this performance.
