Indiana is another Midwest conventions powerhouse, largely thanks to Indianapolis. The state’s capital has invested in its hospitality and meetings infrastructure big time, expanding the convention center and offering plenty of hotel options—4,700 hotel rooms are connected via climate-controlled skyways to Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium alone! Couple that with its impressive track record for hosting major sporting events and being home to leaders in technology, life sciences and agribusiness, and there’s something for every group in Indy.
