New Shows. Experienced Producer!
While these shows may be new…the producer, Donell Heberer Walton, brings 17 years of show experience leading the Indiana “Flower” & “Christmas” Shows, held at the State Fairgrounds. Donell served as lead salesperson and show manager for 5 years, before being promoted to Executive Director and Show Producer for the remaining years of her time with HSI.
Leading surveys and studying focus groups, as well as years of listening and learning from exhibitors, sponsors, suppliers, contractors, show visitors and other industry professionals resulted in a revelation: The ideal location for consumer shows wanting to attract upper income customers… is in Suburban Indy. Thus, we welcome you to join us, and grow with us, at Suburban Indy Shows!!

Show producer for 17+ years!
Why Suburban Indy Shows?
Locally owned, operated and produced. That means the ultimate decision makers are right here, right now.
A portion of each ticket sold at every Suburban Indy Shows event goes to a local not-for-profit…because we believe giving back to our community is important.
Because we care about your business AND we care about you! Your involvement in a consumer show should be a business partnership. If you don’t feel you’re working WITH the show team, and you aren’t being heard, then you’re with the wrong producer.
…location, location! While there are 1.2 million people within 25 miles of our show, we are centered in the affluent north suburbs. There are 90,000 homes within a 10-mile radius of the show, with an average home value of $309,314 and a household income of $117,164!
17+ years of trusted show production experience, including both the Flower Show and Christmas Show at our Indiana State Fairgrounds! In total…42 successful shows produced.
With limited space available, the focus will be on quality businesses, quality exhibits with quality staff…low category repetition will set us apart from our competitors and you from yours.
Timing is everything
After talking with industry professionals, I kept hearing a couple of the same concerns:
• Please respect our time…shorten the amount of show days.
• February is the ideal time for us…January is too early and March is too late;
See below to learn what exhibitors are saying about Suburban Indy Shows.
“We have really enjoyed working with Donell over the past 4 years on our projects. She has an amazing ability to pull the best out of people and really motivate a person to achieve. I feel she is extremely well organized and her thought process is very comprehensive. We will look forward to working with her on future projects.”
Caryn Atkinson, Landscape Architect

“I have worked with Donell for over 15 years and have nothing by great things to say about her and her abilities to run a top-notch show. She knows this business very well and understands the value of marketing and advertising her events to drive results. I’m confident her events will produce a good return for participating vendors. I’m looking forward to working with her again!”
Loree Myers, Event Marketing Director
“I have been working with Donell for 13 years at shows within the green industry. It is amazing how she understands the importance of relationships and communication. The detail and organization it takes to put on a show is more than most can comprehend…Donell never missed a beat and was always willing to step up to the plate to make the shows she produced better and better each year. It has been a pleasure to know and work with Donell and I look forward to many more years to come.”
Ryan Coyle, Owner

“VALUED BUSINESS PARTNER”
“For the past 7 years I have worked very closely with Donell and her team through many shows. In that time I have never met a more professional, caring, and fun group of show producers! I currently cover 5 states, and participate in many industry events. While they are all rewarding in their own right, there is nothing more fulfilling than coming home to one of Donell’s show creations! She is a great show producer, great business partner, and an even better friend! We look forward to many more great shows together.”
Brock Harmon, Belgard Sales Manager
“Quality & Excitement”
“We have worked with Donell since 2002. She always puts on a quality show. We are so excited about her new venture that we have decided to do all of her shows. She is a wonderful show promoter and a really nice gal!! Looking forward to working with her again.”
Gene and Renae Duran
“QUEEN OF EVENTS”
“You certainly are the Queen of Events. Over these past two decades, we have come to know you and the passion you put into each and every show you are involved. It’s been a pleasure working with you over the many years you represented HSI.
I have no doubt you will bring your energy, passion, professionalism and creativity into your new venture.”
Denny Kladis, President
“IMAGINATIVE APPROACH TO SHOW PRODUCTION”
“I have worked with Donell for more than 10 years. As a vendor in her shows I have found her to be responsive to challenges and quick with solutions. Donell ‘s imaginative approach to show production and her willingness to try new ideas has always resulted in a show that can be recognized as superior on a national level. For my company, sponsorship of a show produced by Donell Walton is both a privilege and a pleasure.”
