The Indiana Convention Center complex, including Lucas Oil Stadium, is a model of convenience, located in the middle of one of the nation’s friendliest and most vibrant downtown areas.
Indianapolis has made headlines by recently investing $3 billion in a first-rate tourism infrastructure to ensure the 13th largest city in the country is a vibrant destination for large-scale trade shows and conventions. Lucas Oil Stadium, home of Super Bowl 2012, was built as a multi-purpose facility connected to the Indiana Convention Center. The center was nearly doubled in size to make it the 17th largest in the country. Together they offer 749,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space in the heart of Indianapolis with direct connections to 4,700 hotel rooms.
The Indiana Convention Center implements programs to keep its environmental impact to a minimum.
An Indianapolis-based organization called Second Helpings reclaims food after a banquet and takes it to kitchens at their facility to be distributed to homeless shelters and missions, reducing waste and feeding the community.
Aluminum cans, palettes, paper, and cooking oil used at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium are recycled.
They’ve created their own line of biodegradable, disposable serviceware products. Also, paper towels and tissues are 100% recycled material.
Green Seal-certified cleaning products are used throughout the facility.
Catering uses milk, cheese, and yogurt from a local organic dairy farm, as well as local produce.
Lighting and HVAC is reduced in unoccupied areas of the building and in exhibit halls during move-in and move-out. Meeting rooms and lobby areas use compact fluorescent lamps, and exhibit halls provide more efficient lower-wattage lamps with the same light output. And Lucas Oil Stadium saves energy with CPI Daylighting system and fans designed to move the maximum amount of air with minimal energy consumption.
Water stations are provided in place of bottles for attendees. Sink faucets and low-flow toilets also reduce water waste. For clean-up, all parking lots are swept—not sprayed.
The walkability and convenience of meeting in Indianapolis means less shuttling, less commuting, less time stuck in traffic idling car and bus engines. Less exhaust puffing out of vehicles reduces our carbon footprint.
