Indianapolis to host international business conference

The state plans to welcome hundreds of business and economic development leaders to Indianapolis in the spring for its first-ever Indiana Global Economic Summit.

In announcing the April 26-28 event Wednesday, the Indiana Economic Development Corp. said it expects to draw 600 to 800 attendees from the state, the United States and from other countries.

The guest list will include “economic development partners in business, education and government as well as business prospects from across the world to foster collaboration and accelerate conversations on the future of the global economy,” the IEDC said.

Conference programming is set to take place at the Indiana Convention Center and The Westin Indianapolis. Event receptions are scheduled for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Indiana State Museum.

Numerous high-growth industry sectors will be represented at the event, such as advanced manufacturing, defense and cybersecurity, life sciences, agbiosciences, aerospace and IT.
