Meeting & Event Success Stories


Visit Hendricks County has helped event organizers plan their meetings, conferences & special events for years. To give you an idea of what we can do, we'd like to share some of our most recent success stories.


ISAE STAR Awards

Embassy Suites by Hilton Plainfield Indianapolis Airport Hotel

The team at Visit Hendricks County has been a longtime supporter of our association and was instrumental in organizing our biggest event of the year this past December. In addition to their logistical support of this successful event, VHC staff connected us with the Misty Eyes animal shelter for our onsite food drive, then personally delivered the boxes of pet food to the shelter. I am consistently impressed by the dedication and outstanding level of support displayed by VHC in helping our organization and members achieve our goals.​

Indiana Rural Health Association Events

CRG Event Center & Embassy Suites by Hilton Plainfield Indianapolis Airport Hotel

Visit Hendricks County (VHC) has been so helpful finding meeting locations for the Indiana Rural Health Association events.  One of the most valuable services provided is that of connecting our Association with food pantries in the county where we can send the canned goods donated by our conference attendees.  VHC has connected us with the Mary Lee Maier Food Pantry for our food drives and Sheltering Wings with taking our leftover perishable food.  Being able to connect local groups with philanthropic efforts is a benefit to utilizing your services.  It has been an honor and a privilege to work with Visit Hendricks County.  Indiana Rural Health Association now has several great facilities in Hendricks County with which to work, and we look forward to continuing this beneficial and worthwhile relationship in a county that is so accessible to our membership.

Indiana Guitar Show 

Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex

Thank you to all who came out for the Indiana Guitar Show today. Our dealers, the buying public and our helpers. Hoosier Roots Catering was AWESOME and the venue at The Hendricks County Fairgrounds was the BEST EVER! We will never do another show anywhere else... Around 850 or so were there to enjoy the show. You don't always get to hang out with friends from all over central Indiana who all are brought together by the love of music.

Alpha Delta Kappa State Convention

Embassy Suites by Hilton Plainfield Indianapolis Airport Hotel

Alpha Delta Kappa Honorary Teachers’ Sorority.  The April Convention was held in Plainfield, and from the time I contacted Visit Hendricks County in January to explain the kinds of sessions I was hoping to offer, their assistance in planning and follow-up were thorough and very helpful.  In fact, they initiated contact with several area businesses, and by the time I contacted them for follow-up, they had already penciled us in.  I am very grateful for Visit Hendricks County’s continuing assistance.

"Each year, we host an Indiana Storm Chaser's Convention which brings together storm chasers, meteorologists, and weather enthusiasts from around the country. We had been growing so fast in the last few years that our previous venues were no longer able to accommodate us. I reached out to a venue in Hendricks County that ended up being closed for remodeling, but they directed me to Visit Hendricks County. They promptly replied back to my e-mail and I explained what our needs and budget were, and within a day they had found the perfect venue for us at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds, that was very accommodating to our guests, great for the presentations and viewing, and was in our budget!

"We went in for a tour the next week and loved the venue and met some amazing ladies from Visit Hendricks County and the Hendricks County Fairgrounds that helped us out in every way possible! They were so nice and helpful, and even attended our convention with a booth to suggest nearby hotel and restaurant selections for our guests. They also stepped in and offered to help with our check-in when we were overwhelmed with long lines! We had nothing but great feedback about the venue that day, and plan to have INChaserCon there for many years to come!"
