Indianapolis emerges as preferential exhibition destination

"Preferential Exhibition"

Indiana’s Governor, Eric Holcomb, recently highlighted the city’s competitiveness in the exhibition market at the Sweets & Snacks Expo in Indianapolis. He emphasized on the city’s economical rates and beneficial regulatory atmosphere for businesses, in line with state’s economic growth strategies.

The Expo served as a networking and exploration platform, attracting businesses nationally and internationally. Not only did participants explore potential collaborations, but also got the chance to interact directly with market leaders, attend lessons-fulfilled seminars and partake in product showcases.

One fact remains undeniable, the state government’s pro-business approach has created a conducive environment for both startup and already-established businesses. Besides, this corporate-friendly environment has made Indianapolis an irresistible choice for business expositions or potentially a leading exhibition destination.

The success of the just-concluded expo underlines the city’s position in the exhibition market, ushering in more growth and opportunities. Businesses are now recognizing the city’s economical rates and favorable regulatory atmosphere, hinting towards a promising local economic expansion.

However, post-pandemic, the exhibition industry faced a major hurdle, almost leading to its downfall.

Indianapolis: A competitive choice for exhibitions

Now that things are returning to normal, Indianapolis is back on its feet, competing with major exhibition cities like Las Vegas, Orlando, and Rosemont. And with safety measures and technological upgrades at the Indiana Convention Center, the city is well-prepared to meet the changing demands of the industry amidst the recovering pandemic.

Granted, the competition level remains intense, with Orlando, Las Vegas, and Rosemont fighting for that greater share of recovering exhibition business. However, Indianapolis, with its coupled infrastructure and access to modern facilities and services, is reaffirming its position as a trusted exhibition destination.

With all these in place, plus a variety of hotel accommodations and local attractions, the city of Indianapolis is positioning itself as a leading exhibition destination. They’ve taken health and safety precautions seriously, making event-goers more comfortable with the idea of participating in in-person events despite the overall uncertainty due to the pandemic.

Despite several uncertainties and concerns raised by local business owners in Indianapolis, there’s a growing sense of optimism among entrepreneurs who view upcoming events as an opportunity to widen their customer base and boost their revenues, countering the prevailing anxiety.

Key in this is maintaining their success in hosting expos by addressing discouraging factors such as high crime rates, elevated costs and potential preferential treatment issues. After all, their success is primarily attributable to excellent infrastructures, convenient location, and a variety of comforts that keep both exhibitors and attendees coming back.
