  1. 2022 Illinois Fertilizer & Chemical Association Convention
  • This week we’re so excited to welcome the 2022 Illinois Fertilizer & Chemical Association Convention to the Peoria Civic Center. 
  • The convention is in town the next few days and it’s amazing to be able to welcome them to our downtown area and show off our communities. 
  • Having conventions like the Illinois Fertilizer & Chemical Association in town is crucial because just this event alone brings in $647,069 in Direct Economic Impact which creates $48,969 in local taxes. 
  • In the next coming weeks, we’re excited to welcome other big conventions like the Illinois Music Education Association for their 2022 Illinois Music Education Conference also at the Peoria Civic Center.
