Help us kick off our conference by joining us at our opening night reception (optional)!
This year the opening night reception will be held at the Art Bank located at 811 Massachusetts Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46204, from 5:30PM – 7:00PM
Established in 2007, the Art Bank is one of the most respected and well recognized galleries in Indianapolis. The Art Bank is claims distinction among other venues for numerous reasons. First, the gallery is housed in a repurposed bank built circa 1920; even the vault and teller room are intact. Second, the atmosphere of the Art Bank is uniquely whimsical and inviting, featuring over 20 artists’ eclectic works within its quaint rooms and winding walls. Third, the Art Bank has a philanthropic spirit, being one of the only galleries in Indiana that doesn’t charge commission on art sales. Since its inception, the Art Bank has generously provided a home for hundreds of artists to display their work free of charge.
The Conference features two days of an educational keynote, plenary and breakout sessions. The full program will be available soon.

Goodwill Recycling Center in Greenwood
Ever wonder where your donated clothes and household items end up if they aren’t sold or aren’t up to retail standards? Goodwill recently opened a new recycling center in Greenwood, IN. The recycling center is supplied by unsold material from their retail locations and outlet stores across the state. After touring the center last year, the IRC staff was impressed with its processing capability and is excited to announce it as a tour stop!
Exhibitors at the Conference come from all over the state and region, representing nearly every aspect of the industry and offering a wide array of products and services. The Trade Show is the perfect way to extend your brand and meet prospective partners.
