Visit Indy for WEC 2018!
As the concept designing experiences takes center stage in the events industry, MPI is embracing the transition for its 17,000 members.
Designing experiences will be the focus of MPI’s WEC in Indianapolis June 2-5. A completely reimagined event design and education program will inspire new ideas and connect you with people you need to meet.
Indy was a city designed as an event destination, strategically laid out to connect people during an event. It’s the perfect host city for MPI to launch their new event design.
Decades ago, Indy leaders set into motion a plan to design a downtown that would serve as a model convention and event district. The plan worked, winning Indy more than 600 conventions a year and drawing more than 28 million visitors annually.
The city boasts more hotels (12) and hotel rooms (4,700) connected to the convention center by enclosed skywalks than any other city in the country. Seven of the eight WEC host hotels are connected and the other is only two blocks away.
The design led to USA Today naming Indy the “#1 Convention City in the U.S.” and Carlson Wagonlit Travel positioning Indy 5th on their “Top 10 Destinations for Meetings & Events in North America” list.
The city’s event expertise will be showcased next June 2-5 during WEC 2018. Join us!
