Whether Seattle-based Gen Con and local officials can now reach an understanding on technology could spell the difference between Indianapolis’ hanging onto its most prized convention and potentially losing it to another city.
The Capital Improvement Board has selected a Kite Realty Group plan from among three proposals in its effort to expand the city's convention capacity. The CIB is expected to vote Friday to move the project forward.
Gen Con this year plans to use more than 750,000 square feet in the Indiana Convention Center, Lucas Oil Stadium and in the connector between the two facilities. It's the most space ever booked for an Indianapolis convention.
