Manning talked about how much Indianapolis has grown since he first came here 20 years ago. “My first year in Indy, I lived downtown. I lived at the old Indianapolis Athletic Club … free laundry, free room service … and I spent a lot of time downtown and used to go eat at the old Palomino grill, and, of course, St. Elmos, but to see the development of this city and especially downtown has really been phenomenal.”

A record 28.8 million people visited Indianapolis in 2017, generating a $5.4 billion in economic impact.
