USA Today's #1 Convention City in the U.S. was strategically designed to accommodate major conventions and events. Indianapolis' unmatched connectivity and convenience is highlighted by having more hotel rooms connected by climate-controlled skywalks to the convention center than any other city. 4,700 rooms at 12 hotels connect to 749,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space in the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium.
In the last decade, Indy has doubled the size of the Indiana Convention Center to make it among the largest in the country with 566,600 sq. ft. of contiguous exhibit space, built a Super Bowl host stadium connected to the convention center, welcomed a 1,005-room JW Marriott headquarter hotel, opened a brand new airport that consistently earns Best Airport in North America honors, replaced a lane of car traffic in the downtown core with an 8-mile urban greenway, and transformed a street outside the convention center's front door into a three-block promenade and event venue.
Downtown hotels have invested more than $150 million in upgrades and new builds in recent years, and another $130 million in hotel projects are slated for development. Downtown Indy offers 7,100 guest rooms and the metro area boasts 33,000 rooms.
Having one of the most walkable downtowns in the country eliminates transportation needs and ensures a great attendee experience. Over 250 restaurants and 50 attractions are just steps away.
Indy is known as a sports capital and the racing capital of the world. The city is also home to the nation's largest urban state park, world-class cultural institutions, chef-owned restaurants, the world's largest children's museum, the original LOVE sculpture, and more monuments dedicated to our nation's veterans than any other city aside from Washington, DC.
