Welcome to Indianapolis, Indiana!

 

We’re excited to welcome you to downtown Indianapolis, where entertainment is front and center. The 2022 Kiwanis International Convention will take place at the Indiana Convention Center, which is just minutes from all your favorite hotel brands.

Step outside and you’ll see the retro-style Gainbridge Fieldhouse — home of the NBA Indiana Pacers. Look down the street (and up — it's a big building!) to gaze at Lucas Oil Stadium — home of the NFL Indianapolis Colts. Circle Centre Mall, a four-story shopping hub, and Georgia Street, a unique outdoor event promenade, connect these major event venues.  

Just steps away from the convention center are attractions such as Monument Circle, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Indiana Repertory Theatre, comedy clubs, steakhouses, sports bars and more.

Stay with Kiwanis friends at a preferred hotel.

 One of the benefits of being a Kiwanian: preferred hotel rates at our select convention hotels. Staying at one of these hotels gets you extra perks, such as a hotel in a prime location, a $10 credit to the Kiwanis Store per room, upgrades as available and the opportunity to meet and mingle with Kiwanis members from your district and beyond.

Book your room by clicking on the picture of the hotel. Please do not contact the hotels directly because this is a special rate that is only available through Kiwanis.

Note: There will be no shuttles, as the official hotels are all located near the convention center.
