Indianapolis Shines for NSC 2017

Indiana's capital city was a fine choice to host the National Safety Council's annual conference.

INDIANAPOLIS – This city proved to be an excellent choice to host the 2017 National Safety Council Congress & Expo this week.

For many exhibitors and attendees, Indianapolis was just a few hours' drive or a short flight away.

The downtown area of Indiana's capital city is walkable and filled with attractions, from public parks and museums to monuments, the state capitol building, and Lucas Oil Stadium right next door to the Indiana Convention Center. It's no wonder that those facilities will host almost 20 conventions of at least 10,000 attendees in the next two years, according to their online upcoming events calendar.

Multiple hotels are within walking distance from the convention center and connected to it via skywalks, and there are numerous restaurants and bars near the convention center where exhibitors held evening events after the first and second days of the 2017 NSC expo.

Really, the only difficulty during NSC 2017 seemed to be the heat wave during the event – making the skywalks an even better option for reaching the venue.

It's easy to see why FDIC International, one of the largest U.S. fire shows, always takes place here. (FDIC International 2018 will be April 23-28.) The 2017 FDIC brought 798 exhibitors and 33,979 attendees to the city, including 1,550 international attendees from 58 countries, according to the show's website.
