We will take a deep dive into the role that sports play in building a successful community. Indianapolis has gone from a sleepy Midwest city to shining on the national stage; however, is that enough? Our guests will discuss that question, as well as ongoing initiatives that will take Indy to a global audience, the cultural impact that sports has on the city and what the future of sports will look like and how we as young professionals play a crucial role in the sustainability and the continued growth of Indianapolis.
