Indy is Trendy

Since 2011, Indianapolis has hosted a Super Bowl, created the 7.5-mile Indianapolis Cultural Trail, and been named America’s Best Convention City in “USA Today.” But the distinction ATA Show attendees might like best is that Indianapolis’ Convention Center connects to more hotel rooms (4,700) than any other similar setup in the nation.

Show attendees also can enjoy convenient dining options while in Indianapolis. Roughly 250 pubs, shops, restaurants and attractions are within walking distance of the Convention Center and downtown hotels.

Indianapolis’ restaurant guide and map are featured in the Exhibitor Kit. You can download it here.
