Why Choose Our Destination?

Indy’s strategically designed convention district, vibrant neighborhoods, and picturesque gathering places provide the ideal setting for successful events. Attendees can choose from walkable attractions like the 250-acre downtown White River State Park, scenic Central Canal, internationally acclaimed Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Monument Circle, engaging museums, top-ranked sporting facilities, and more. From a 1,013-room headquarter JW Marriott, voted #1 hotel in the Midwest by Conde Nast Traveler, to the “#1 Airport in North America,” first-tier infrastructure provides the base for an unforgettable experience. Of the 7,100 downtown hotel rooms, 4,700 rooms at 12 properties connect to the convention center by skywalk – the most in the country. New developments keep Indy racing ahead. Hilton chose Indy as one of only three cities to launch its new meeting-centric Signia brand. This new property will stand 40 stories tall, offer 800 rooms, and include a top-level bar with skyline views. An expansion of the Indiana Convention Center, including a 50,000-sq.-ft. ballroom will connect the hotel to the center, creating an unrivaled convention package. This project is anticipated to open in 2026. Monument Circle, the iconic heart of the city, is equipped with state-of-the-art light and audio technology and features a must-see, nightly patriotic salute entitled Shining A Light. TIME Magazine, Travel + Leisure, and Condé Nast Traveler each cited Indy’s newest gem, the Bottleworks District. This entertainment hub features an artisan food hall, movie theater, duckpin bowling and arcade bar, salons, and boutiques. The district’s focal point is the Bottleworks Hotel, a 139-room, luxury property with 13,494 square feet of meeting space, adorned with a classic façade and striking Art-Deco interior. 300+ diverse downtown dining options make up the city’s rising food scene, lending to Forbes spotlighting Indy as one of “Americas Favorite Food Cities.” It’s time to reimagine your event design, exceed expectations, and take your event to the next level with Indy.
