The Partnership's Annual Dinner is the Greater Des Moines (DSM) business community's celebration of the past years economic and community development successes and also provides a look forward into the future of the DSM region. The dinner includes a reception, keynote speaker and dinner. The program includes a presentation of The Partnership's Annual Report, summarizing the accomplishments of the organization's work in 2023. 

The Annual Dinner will feature former NFL quarterback Alex Smith as its keynote speaker. Smith played for 16 seasons in the NFL for San Francisco, Kansas City and Washington, and was selected to three Pro Bowls as one of the most outstanding players in the league. He overcame a life-threatening injury to make it back on the field against the odds. In 2018, Smith suffered a serious leg injury that put his life at risk and could have cost him his leg. After 17 surgeries and rehab, he returned to the field during the 2020 season to lead his team to a division title, earning Smith the title of NFL Comeback Player of the Year by the Associated Press, Sporting News and the Pro Football Writers of America. Following his retirement from the NFL, Smith has worked as an analyst on ESPN since 2021.
Off the field, Smith is a dedicated husband, father and philanthropist as he founded The Alex Smith Foundation, which provides foster teens with the tools and resources needed to transition to successful adulthood.
