Indiana Convention Center Lands Major Tradeshow for 2-Year Booking

INDIANAPOLIS, IN -The Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association (ICVA) has booked another major citywide tradeshow into the expanding Indiana Convention Center-the Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo.

This annual event is the 75th largest tradeshow in the U.S., and is confirmed for February 2012-2014. The expo will attract more than 12,000 attendees annually and generate an estimated $24 million in visitor spending over its three year stretch.

Quantified as the world’s largest annual trade show for environmental service professionals, the Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo is also one of the 50 fastest growing tradeshows in the United States.

“As a direct result of expanding the Indiana Convention Center, additional hotel product coming online, and the continued enhancements of downtown Indianapolis, we were able to lure this sought-after convention to Indianapolis,” said Don Welsh, president and CEO of the ICVA. “Due to its sheer size, this tradeshow is a perfect example of a convention that wouldn’t even consider Indianapolis pre-expansion.”

“With its first-tier convention facilities, convenient hotel skywalk system, and compact downtown core, Indianapolis is the perfect home for our thriving expo,” said Bob Kendall, CEO of Cole Publishing, the ownership company for the Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo. “We are confident our attendees will enjoy the networking and opportunities for business in Indianapolis provides through its numerous restaurants and attractions all within walking distance.”

The tradeshow will monopolize the entire expanding Indiana Convention Center-more than 566,000 square feet-and consume hotel rooms downtown and throughout surrounding suburban areas.

The mission of the Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association is to advance Indianapolis tourism and economic growth. The ICVA seeks to increase the number of visitors and their financial impact, expand positive perception of Indianapolis, and positively influence the visitor experience. According to a Global Insight report, in partnership with D.K. Shifflet & Associates, 22 million visitors annually provide $3.56 billion in total annual economic impact of tourism on the Indianapolis economy resulting in 66,600 full-time equivalent employment positions in the hospitality industry.
