Get Ready for Wow in Indianapolis

The AARC International Respiratory Convention & Exhibition is taking place in Indianapolis, IN — the city USA Today named the #1 convention destination in the country and Travel + Leisure named one of the 50 best places to travel in 2017.

Why is Indy #1?

  • It’s convenient: More hotel rooms connected to the convention center via climate controlled skywalks than in any other city means attendees can get just about any place they want to go without ever stepping outside.

  • Restaurants are plentiful: You’ll find more than 200 restaurants serving every taste and budget within a short, five minute walk of the convention center.

  • It’s affordable: Rates at Indianapolis hotels are significantly lower than those seen in many other cities, making it more cost-effective to attend.

  • Easy to get to: Indianapolis is a short flight for many and the top rated Indianapolis International Airport — named “Best Airport” by Airports Council International and Condé Nast alike — is only 15 minutes from your destination.

  • You’ll be welcomed with open arms: The natives call it “Hoosier Hospitality.” First rate amenities combined with exceptional service leave you feeling like you are the most important person in the room.
