What is WDM EDGE?
West Des Moines is on the cutting edge of innovation and growth. With a population of more than 65,000, West Des Moines is one of the fastest growing cities in Iowa. Nearly 3,000 businesses call West Des Moines home and many of those companies and business sectors have their own distinct set of challenges. The Chamber’s WDM Edge (formerly Business Roundtable) brings subject matter expertise to the podium for an exchange of information that impacts business owners and community across all industries. In 2021, we will examine top industries that call West Des Moines home, trends in those industries, and what we can to do as a community to help support and create an ecosystem that helps these industries continue to thrive. Our hope is from these discussions, as a community, we might discover new ideas that help to propel our region even more forward.
Industries in West Des Moines we will be highlighting include:
  • Real Estate & Development
  • Information Technology
  • Financial Services & Insurance
  • Medical & Life Sciences
  • Manufacturing & Logistics
  • Retail & Hospitality
  • Arts & Entertainment
