Indianapolis has a central location between the Illinois, Michigan and Appalachian basins and the Cincinnati, Kankakee and Finley arches, great interstate, rail and airplane access, and has been called “The Crossroads of America” due to the many intersecting transportation corridors. The historic and renovated Union Station Train Station is a popular and unique location for many meetings and events, and the adjacent former railroad head house has been converted into a modern hotel including renovated Pullman sleeping cars.  Many restaurants, clubs, hotels, shopping  and other attractions are within a few blocks.  Indianapolis is the state capital, and a cultural and business hub, with many colleges and universities in Indy and nearby.
