Three Blocks from the Indiana Convention Center and Perfect for an Everybody-On-Their-Feet Convocation
The home of the NBA's Indiana Pacers and WNBA's Indiana Fever can accommodate up to 5,000 guests, and it's a beautiful facility for any event—from a breakfast meeting to a new product launch to a social hour: nostalgic yet modern, versatile yet clearly designed as a fan's tribute to a sport long associated with our state. Gainbridge Fieldhouse was declared the number one venue in the NBA three years in a row by Sports Business Journal, and has been declared the best sports facility of all four major sports in the US.
The Fieldhouse of the Future
Gainbridge Fieldhouse has undergone major renovations to bring interior, exterior, infrastructure, and technology improvements to the facility solidify the Fieldhouse’s presence as a sports, entertainment and gathering place for years to come. Improvements are enhancing the guest experience, creating more indoor social spaces, and providing dramatic outdoor gathering places for year-round public events.
Bicentennial Unity Plaza, opening in 2023, will be home to a community basketball court that will be converted to a seasonal ice rink, community-based public programming, and new public art thanks to a $28.47 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. A large portion of the plaza will be under a permanent canopy system, which extends its use throughout the year. At least 80 percent of programming on the plaza is reserved for community activities and public performances, and a specially designed 30-ft. by 110-ft. sculpture, titled “Together,” will harken feelings of community.
Being right downtown makes Gainbridge Fieldhouse a quick trip from the Convention Center. For those driving to the meeting, onsite parking is available in the Virginia Street Garage, and there is ample on-street parking: within a 10-minute walk, there are over 42,000 parking spaces.
