Value to the Community
The skywalk system allows Indy to remain competitive for conventions in the colder months and therefore helps sustain more hospitality jobs year-round. The system also allows for more effective parking management downtown, connecting parking garages that are further from venues and minimizing the need to construct additional dedicated garages that detract from downtown's walkability.
Value to the Hospitality Industry
As the convention center with the most connected hotel rooms, Indy’s skywalk system is critical to maintaining a competitive advantage. The system is critical to extending the convention “season” longer into the colder months which helps us maximize return on investment of the convention facilities and extends seasonal jobs.
