New Look for Indy Dealer Expo

December 21, 2008

The 2009 Dealernews International Powersports Dealer Expo in Indianapolis is going to feature an entirely new layout now that the huge Lucas Oil Stadium is up and functional, the Indiana Convention Center has been modified and the RCA Dome has been demolished.

The combination of the new multi-purpose Lucas Oil Stadium, or “The Luke”, and expanded Indiana Convention Center means Indianapolis will be able to offer nearly three quarters of a million square feet of exhibit and meeting space.   The combined new space will make the Indiana Convention Center the nation’s 16th largest. It currently is 32nd.

The revamped Indiana Convention Center is scheduled to offer 566,300 square feet of exhibit space.   Another 183,000 square feet will be in Lucas Oil Stadium, which will be connected to the center via walkway.

Dealer Expo takes place Feb. 13-16.
