You're invited to the Westside Development Summit

15 Oct 2018 10:24 AM | Deleted user

A summit focused on development in the westside of Indianapolis will be held Tuesday, October 23, 2018.

With the latest Infosys announcement to build a technology hub at the former Indianapolis International Airport terminal site, development on the west side of Indianapolis will likely increase as Infosys brings on 3,000 new jobs – 1,000 more than previously announced. Such announcements like this present opportunities for communities to begin to strategically think about future development.

The full-day session will feature key players who can help you grow and invest in Hendricks County and the westside of Indianapolis at an opportune time. Topics include: industrial development, retail and hospitality development, office development, housing development and opportunity zones. Infosys will also give the keynote speech, which is their first official public appearance since the announcement of the brand new technology hub.
