Dealer Expo will remain in Indianapolis through at least 2016, according to published reports.
Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association officials announced the five-year extension — the previous agreement ran through next year — earlier this week, according to the Indianapolis Business Journal.
Dealer Expo is one of the biggest events held in Indianapolis and generates more than $20 million in direct visitor spending, according to the online report.
Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association officials attributed the success in extending Dealer Expo’s stay there to recent investments in Lucas Oil Stadium, and Indiana Convention Center expansion and construction of the JW Marriot hotel complex downtown.
