A $275 million expansion has made the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium a powerhouse destination for the largest events in the country—including the 2012 Super Bowl. With its striking contemporary look and sense of openness, the ICC redefines the character of a trade show and meeting venue.
The Indiana Convention Center is located in the heart of the 12th largest city in the U.S., Indianapolis, Indiana. The state capital, Indianapolis ranks in the top 25 most visited cities in the country, with 26 million annual visitors. Indianapolis International Airport accommodates 150 flights each day, carrying 7.2 million yearly passengers to and from the Circle City.
Now one of the largest convention centers in America, the Indiana Convention Center is connected by skywalks to more hotel rooms than any other city in the nation. Also linked to the center is a four-story urban shopping mall, surrounded by more than 200 restaurants and clubs, well-known sports venues, and a 10-block state park that features top museums, green space and a convenient canal walk. It’s the reason Sports Illustrated's Peter King calls Indianapolis "the most walkable downtown in America."
With over $3 billion in convention industry investments, no other city in the nation can match Indianapolis’ collection of upgrades and developments. We invite you to discover everything we have to offer for your next event experience.
