Why Choose Our Destination?

USA Today’s “#1 Convention City in the U.S.” offers a strategically designed convention district set in the heart of a vibrant downtown with dining, shopping, and entertainment in walking distance. A record 4,700 hotel rooms at 12 properties connect by enclosed skywalk to 749,000 square feet of exhibit space in the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium – more than any other U.S. city. And more is in store. Indy just approved plans for a 235,000 sq. ft. expansion of the Indiana Convention Center and an additional 1,414 hotel rooms connected in two Hilton-affiliated hotels. The expansion will include a 50,000 sq. ft. ballroom (the state's largest) and is anticipated to open in late 2022. Downtown currently offers more than 7,100 hotel rooms, but this new development and other projects in the pipeline will soon bring the number to 10,000. The already rcord number of hotels and hotel rooms connected to the convention center will increase to 6,100 rooms at 14 properties. The city boasts 32,000 rooms in the metro area. From a 1,005-room headquarter JW Marriott named “Top 25 Hotels in the World” by Condé Nast to the “#1 Airport in America,” first-tier infrastructure provides the base for a world-class experience. 250 dining options make up the city’s rising food scene, leading to Food & Wine spotlighting Indy as one of "America's Favorite Food Cities." Attendees can choose from world-class attractions like White River State Park, the scenic Central Canal, the internationally-acclaimed Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Monument Circle, inspiring museums, a sports scene that’s second-to-none, and more. Vibrant neighborhoods, and picturesque gathering places provide the ideal setting for successful events. It’s all part of why Forbes named Indy "The Most Underrated City in America."
