INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis is getting ready to host one of its biggest conventions ever, but tourism officials aren’t talking about it much.
The National Rifle Association meeting at the Indiana Convention Center April 25-27 is expected to draw 70,000 or more visitors.
Visit Indy spokesman Chris Gahl tells the Indianapolis Business Journal (http://bit.ly/1jp0qsB ) that no news release or official statement has been made about the meeting at the request of NRA officials, even though it’s only a few months away.
NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam says the gun rights group tried to find an event to announce the selection of Indianapolis when the city was chosen four years ago but none ever materialized.
