Thanks to a dramatic 2010 expansion, the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium (which are joined by a climate-controlled walkway) now offer a combined 745,000 square feet of exhibit space (nearly doubling the convention center's previous size) making the linked structures one of the nation's largest convention facilities.
By itself, the Indiana Convention Center offers 566,000 square feet of exhibit space, plus 83 meeting and ballroom spaces (including the Sagamore Ballroom--which, at 33,000 square feet, qualifies as the Midwest's largest ballroom). The center is connected by skywalks to 4,719 hotel rooms--more than any other convention center in the nation.
Lucas Oil Stadium--home, as if we needed to tell you, of the NFL's Indianapolis Colts--is a multi-use, all-weather venue that (independent of the Indiana Convention Center) offers 179,000 square feet of exhibit space. Seating 63,000 for games, concerts and meetings, the stadium also includes 12 meeting rooms and a retractable roof.
Public tours of Lucas Oil Stadium are available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Lasting roughly one hour, the tours include visits to the playing field, a locker room, Lucas Oil Plaza, the stadium's press box, a suite and various other areas that you wouldn't typically see unless you were wearing a helmet with a horseshoe on the side.
