NSC's Next Stop: Indianapolis
The 2017 National Safety Congress & Expo will take place Sept. 23-29 in downtown Indianapolis.
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The three expo days of the 2016 National Safety Congress & Expo are complete, and the annual conference is wrapping up on Oct. 20-21 with four all-day Professional Development Seminars each day. So it's not too early to look ahead and prepare for the 2017 event, which will take place Sept. 23-29, 2017 -- with a Sept. 25-27 expo -- at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis.
The convention center offers 566,600 square feet of contiguous exhibit space in 11 halls, plus three ballrooms and 71 meeting rooms. It is surrounded by 11 hotels within a block's walk (several are connected to the convention center by skywalks) and nine other hotels slightly farther away, according to the downtown map available at www.visitindy.com.
For those traveling to Indianapolis for the show, there are plenty of things to do and see around the city. A tour of the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a must for racing fans, and a walk along the White River canal is a great way to spend the afternoon.
For foodies, St. Elmo's Steakhouse and its shrimp cocktail should be on the bucket list, as well as a stop at what critics are calling one of the best restaurants in the country in Milktooth.
The 2016 NSC expo was the largest ever in floor space, NSC officials said, a good sign for the safety industry as a whole and for the 2017 event coming to the Indiana Convention Center.
