Northwest Iowa….A Land Beyond Expectations! We’re proud of our region and all the wonderful communities in Northwest Iowa. Northwest Iowa Development (NWID), the regional economic development partnership devoted to marketing the region has created a video series.  The “A Land Beyond Expectations” series captures our regional pride in a lively and entertaining way. The videos were produced for NWID by an outstanding young Iowa-based video production firm, Iowa Filmmakers.

Northwest Iowa is a land of green fields, blue skies, yellow sun, short commutes, friendly neighbors, things to do and time to do them in. You’ll find challenging and invigorating jobs with plenty of opportunity. View the video series and don’t settle… go beyond your expectations!
