One Place Works For Everything!, An Eventective User from Indianapolis, Indiana

I first discovered this versatile space in 2006 when I attended that year's GenCon. It was then incredibly accommodating and seamlessly handled the event, which consists of many different events of many sizes all happening at once. Since then this venue has undergone renovations, completed in 2008, to bring it to its current luxurious space. This space boasts the ability to handle virtually any size crowd, from private gatherings such as weddings and wedding receptions, board meetings and company retreats to huge conventions such as GenCon, which is still held there each year, and boasts not only the space but also the technological capacity for presentations and expositions of all types. It is also located in a highly convenient place for out of town travelers, as it boasts several hotels, some connected by skywalk, others easily accessible by the excellent public transportation system within the city. I also like that it has an institutional commitment to diversity, as it is the central location of the ten day Indiana Black Expo, an event which has run for many years and is a source of strength for the black community as well as providing a chance for multicultural interaction and cooperation. The Indiana Convention Center is also adjacent to Lucas Oil Stadium, which during football season, can provide fantastic entertainment for winding down and team building after the workshops of a company retreat or convention are finished for the evening. I would have to say that the Indiana Convention Center is easily the best meeting venue in the city of Indianapolis, regardless of the type or size of meeting!


Best Venue For A Large Conference or Meeting In Midwest Region, An Eventective User from Indianapolis, Indiana

Indiana Convention Center is considered one of the top 20 largest convention centers in the nation today. It has over 566,000 square feet of meeting space and an extra 183,000 square feet inclusive of the attached Lucas Oil Stadium. Therefore, it is capable of accommodating the largest conference, convention or meeting. Another advantage to selecting the Indiana Convention Center is the availability of the rental of technological equipment provided by Rentacomputer.com, a cutting edge provider of the newest technical equipment. Rentacomputer provides laptops, desktops, All-in-one, server, Tablet PC, iPad, computer peripheral and network rentals, office equipment that includes: printer, copier, fax machine, network and AirPrint Enabled Printers, projector, Projector screen, monitor, plasma display, lighting system, sound system and more. <p> The additional advantage of renting equipment from Rentacomputer is that the Indiana Convention Center accepts all responsibility for the equipment onsite, handles the equipment delivery and set-up for each client to allow the client to facilitate with ease. An additional advantage of the attached Lucas Oil Stadium is that it accommodates 63,000 people and has a retractable roof for multiple uses (especially when the Indiana Convention Center has an event that utilizes the stadium as well). The Stadium will be used next year for the 2012 Super Bowl and it is the home of the Indianapolis Colts Football Team, the Super Bowl Champions of 2006. <p> Finally, a large conference or meeting planned in Indiana or the Midwest Region can be easily booked with the technological equipment made available by Rentacomputer. The Rentacomputer Company keeps up with the latest in computer technology and gives repeat customers rates at a fraction of the cost for new equipment purchased and brought in to the event.

Indianapolis Convention Center, An Eventective User from Fishers, IN

I attended Gencon at the Indianapolis Convention Center in 2011. The main convention center is large and well organized, and the adjoining hotels have supplemental space, with skywalks connecting all adjoining spaces. The Circle Center Mall is nearby, complete with a food court, and that is also connected by a skywalk. In general, I am very pleased with the design and setup of the Convention Center.
