After being canceled last year due to the pandemic, one of the largest trade shows in Indianapolis is set to kick off Thursday at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium. The Performance Racing Industry Trade Show is expected to feature more than 1,100 exhibitors and draw tens of thousands of attendees.

The three-day trade show is billed as the “global motorsports industry’s most influential business event.” Exhibitors will be showcasing the latest products and technology for all forms of motorsports.

“After nearly two years apart, our industry is eager to come together under one roof at the 2021 PRI Show,” said Karin Davidson, PRI Trade Show director, in written remarks. “The special programs and features that we’ve added to this year’s show will create an environment conducive to business and will complement the innovation and technology that will be on display.”

The PRI said the event will occupy 750,000 square feet throughout the Indiana Convention Center.

Prior to the onset of the pandemic, the PRI Trade Show originally scheduled for December 2020 was expected to attract 70,000 attendees and $65 million in economic impact.

This year’s event runs through Saturday.

  1. I am not aware of any studies showing high transmissibility in locations with 20 ft+ high ceilings. Getting extra air movement is helpful, too. Not sure what the air exchange rates are, but you can add extra fans strategically positioned to try to circulate air ‘upwards.’ Having the promoters work to keep the volume down so people don’t have to yell to be heard is also a practical step.
