Indy Convention And Visitors Association Show Sigh Of Relief

Last updated on Wednesday, August 12, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - A sigh of relief from Indy’s Convention and Visitors Association at Monday’s city-county council vote to boost Marion County’s hotel tax.

ICVA president don welsh calculates 1.3-million room-nights from 72 already-booked conventions would have been at risk if the tax hike hadn't passed.

The hotel tax will raise four-million dollars for the Capital Improvement Board, which operates the Indiana Convention Center.
