Indianapolis Business Journal

JAN. 5-11, 2024

The NBA All-Star Weekend is just six weeks away, and it’s a much different event that what originally had been planned for 2021 but was canceled due to the pandemic. IBJ kicks off its coverage this week with two front page stories: Susan Orr details the new approach for entertaining non-ticketed fans and involving local businesses and volunteers; and Dave Lindquist chronicles how local hospitality venues are gearing up to host the many public, private and corporate events connected with the NBA’s midseason extravaganza. Also in this week’s issue, Daniel Bradley outlines the distance between what has been proposed for the Maurer Commons site in Whitestown and what some community members and town councilors would like to see.
