Why Choose Our Destination?
Game-changing expansion and major developments are coming to USA Today’s “#1 Convention City in the U.S.," adding to the city's already unmatched walkability, connectivity, and convenience. Indy's downtown convention campus offers 7,100 hotel rooms in walking distance of 749,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium, with 4,700 rooms directly connected to the convention center. That's more rooms connected by enclosed skywalks than any other U.S. city, with another 814 connected rooms slated by 2023. Indy's expansion also plans to include a new 50,000 sq. ft. ballroom (the state's largest) at the Indiana Convention Center and is anticipated to also open in 2023. The city boasts 32,000 rooms in the metro area. Visitors arrive at Conde Nast Traveler's “#1 Airport in America” four years running and experience the quick 15-minute transfer to downtown. More than 300 restaurants and attractions are in walking distance of downtown hotels. The city’s rising food scene captured the attention of Food & Wine, who spotlighted 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."
