Meanwhile, across South Street, the convention center expansion will yield 30 additional meeting rooms and four new exhibit halls (“H” through “K,” totaling 240,000 square feet, with “I” to be the center’s biggest, at 88,000 square feet). The finishing touch will be a stretch of the city’s Cultural Trail that will run along Capitol Avenue from the center to the new stadium. Started in 2007, Indianapolis’ ongoing $50million Cultural Trail is an eight-mile collection of greenways with art installations and bicycle paths, designed to link downtown to several flanking neighborhoods. Altogether, the various projects represent more than $2 billion in investments for a civic reinvention that will allow Indianapolis to challenge Chicago and other majors for large events. —William Ng > Calendar October 5-7 ACTE (Association of Corporate Travel Executives) Global Education Conference, Rome, Italy (703) 683-5322 November 1-5 ICCA (International Congress & Convention Association) 47th ICCA Congress & Exhibition, Victoria, Canada 31 20 3981902 November 7-11 AH&LA (American Hotel & Lodging Association) Fall Conference, Jacob K.
