Q:

How do I become a casino vendor and/or ask if it is interested in using my product/service?

A:

We encourage a person or company interested in becoming a vendor to first contact the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission. The IRGC regulates the commercial gaming industry, and you can check with them to make sure everything has been done to become an approved vendor.

Additionally, purchasing contacts for each casino are located on the IGA's Buy Iowa First page. The Buy Iowa First program encourages Iowa-based vendors to be competitive in bidding with out-of-state businesses. Price, distribution, volume, storage and quality of the requested product or service are all factors in the decision-making process. Supporting Iowa’s economic development is a central theme in the mission of IGA members.   

Finally, we encourage those who are interested in partnering with Iowa's commercial casinos to become official supporters by adding their company name to our roster of associate members. As IGA associate members, your company gains preferred vendor status, is featured twice a year in our eShowcase, and is invited to IGA events throughout the year that give you access to key casino contacts.
