It's time to be social at APME
Editors can expect a lot of takeaways from the Associated Press Media Editors 2013 conference in Indianapolis, Oct. 28-30, 2013. But the trip doesn’t have to be all work. There are many social activities happening at the conference.
The Indiana Roof Ballroom exudes elegance and 1920s style. It’ll also be the welcoming reception for the APME conference. Hang out at the Italian-inspired bar. Check out auction items in a setting that reminiscent of a mid-century European villa. Gaze at the 30-foot ceiling that ripples with stars. Guarantee: You’ll be Facebooking photos from this reception.
Go back to campus night on Tuesday, Oct. 29, (we're serious — it's a jeans and college sweatshirt event) at a reception at the NCAA Hall of Champions, just across the street from the conference hotels. There, you'll be able to walk through the history of all 23 NCAA-sanctioned sports, test your knowledge of sports trivia, view artifacts from campuses across the country, and compete virtually and hands-on in an interactive play area. This is an experience not to be missed.
If you like to explore, you won’t have to venture far in Indianapolis. APME’s conference takes place in White River State Park, billed as a "cultural urban state park” because of its walkability, museums, gardens, green space, canal and Indianapolis Zoo. Lions, editors and water rides, oh my.
The APME conference has two host hotels at two price points in the same complex, including the J.W. Marriott, $169, and the SpringHill Suites, $139. The conference will be held just across the street at the Indiana State Museum. In addition, the first night's reception and APME Foundation auction will be held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom, and the second night will feature a reception at the NCAA Hall of Champions.
"Indianapolis is a phenomenal city with easy access, and it's a town built around hosting events," said APME President Brad Dennison. "This will be a very compact conference, but attendees will get the full Indy experience."
