December 4, 2017

GREATER DES MOINES, IA (Dec. 4, 2017) — The third annual Des Moines Corporate Games (DMCG), a program of the Iowa Games, will be held June 1 – July 31, 2018.  Companies can now register to secure their spot in this annual event.

Company pride, corporate wellness and team building are all benefits for companies participating in DMCG. 

 “The Des Moines Corporate Games has grown tremendously over the first two years, and we fully expect that trend to continue,” said Chuck Long, CEO of the Des Moines Corporate Games.  “I encourage companies to register early to guarantee their spot.” 

Due to the growth, a limit of 75 companies has been set for the 2018 competition, ensuring the best experience possible for those participating.

Employees will have the opportunity to take part in 26 sports and events during the months of June and July. All events are held in the evenings and on weekends. 

Events range from competitive team sports to non-competitive participation activities, including online challenges that can be completed at the participants’ work sites. 

“We’re excited to once again be partnering with the Iowa Games for the Des Moines Corporate Games,” said Jay Byers, CEO of the Greater Des Moines Partnership. “The Games are a great example of local businesses supporting community-wide health and wellness through teamwork and friendly competition.” 

Entry fees, paid by the participating company, are based on the number of people employed in Greater Des Moines (DSM). Employees do not pay to participate in DMCG sports and events.  

Participating companies are split into divisions based on general company size.  Points are awarded throughout the competition based on sport/event placing, participation and volunteerism. The top three companies in each division will receive recognition, with the winning company in each division receiving the coveted Corporate Games Cup during the Iowa State Fair.

Division winners from 2017 include DuPont Pioneer, Berkley Technology Services, and McGowen, Hurst, Clark & Smith P.C.
