Title: NHC Location Application
Post by: kylekohlmorgen on September 05, 2012, 09:03:07 pm
How does a city get to host the NHC?

I want to start the bid for Indianapolis. A great city for any conference - we have GREAT local beer, homebrew clubs producing commerical-caliber brews, and a unique and expansive tie between the two.

What does a city need to do to be considered?

Hi, Kyle.  There are at least three people who agree with you and are working on a bid.  They are Anita Johnson, Agatha Feltus, and Sandy Cockerham.  You should contact them; I'm sure they'd appreciate your help!

Yep, the first thing to do is read through that doc so you can see what's expected.

Work with those listed above, plenty of work to go around.

Indianapolis would be a fine location. There is a happening downtown with shopping, museums, restaurants and bars. The convention center is connected to many of the hotels, so plenty of rooms.

The beer scene is going like crazy there in the last 2 years. I am there often to see family, and it is hard to keep track of the newbreweries opening all the time.

All that and I can drive there.  :D
