Downtown Indy Inc. Presents:
State Of Downtown
WHERE: Basile Theatre at the Historic Athenaeum
WHEN: Thursday, April 25th, 2019 4pm
A city’s strength and economic resilience are directly related to the strength of its downtown. Clearly, Downtown Indianapolis is experiencing a heightened level of energy, focus and collaboration.
Be a part of this annual meeting of Downtown’s business and residential community as local and national leaders examine the value and benefit of Downtown Indianapolis. Hear not only the “So what?” factor on the strength of our urban core, but also participate in the critical “Now what?” discussion with co-workers and stakeholders.
This year’s State of Downtown features keynote speaker David T. Downey, CAE, President & CEO of the International Downtown Association (IDA), a world leader and champion for vital and livable urban centers. Downey’s perspectives will include the latest data revealed in Indianapolis’ participation in The Value of U.S. Downtowns and Center Cities Report. His remarks will be followed by a panel discussion of local influencers on Downtown’s vibrancy, inclusion, and economic sustainability. Networking follows with beer, wine and great food setting the stage for an even more prosperous urban core.
