Event Details

WHAT ARE GIAA'S PINNACLE OF EXCELLENCE AWARDS?

The Pinnacle of Excellence Awards banquet honors the accomplishments of professionals and organizations in the state of Iowa's apartment industry. At the annual Pinnacle of Excellence Awards banquet, professionals from all walks of the Iowa apartment industry, from suppliers to leasing professionals to management, walk down the red carpet and celebrate their accomplishments. In addition, it's truly a night to honor our industry and all of the hard work that goes into being a stakeholder of rental housing.

We receive hundreds of nominations for award categories such as Management, Communities, Maintenance, and Suppliers each year.  Nominate your all-star or come and join us in the largest GIAA event of the year.  Either way you will never be disappointed with the Pinnacle of Excellence.

The 2022 Pinnacle of Excellence Awards banquet will be held on October 14th from 5pm - 10pm at the Marriott West Des Moines.
