About the Owner / Producer
Consumer show veteran Donell Heberer Walton, brings nearly 20 years of consumer show sales, production and now ownership experience to Suburban Indy Shows!
Before Suburban Indy
She led the Indiana “Flower” & “Christmas” Shows, held at the State Fairgrounds from 2005-2016 as the Executive Director & Show Producer. Before her promotion within HSI, she served as lead salesperson and show manager for 5 years.
Suburban Indy’s roots
Donell formed Suburban Indy Show as a result of 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! Her research & experience resulted in a revelation: The ideal location for consumer shows wanting to attract upper income customers in Indianapolis, is within the northern suburbs! Thus, Suburban Indy Shows was formed in 2017 at Grand Park in Westfield, right in the heart of the ideal showgoer audience!!
Since Suburban Indy
Shortly after forming Suburban Indy she hired her longtime marketing partners at BPS Marketing to help her build the brand and begin promoting the shows! Then she invited her longtime colleague Kim Hirschfeld to join her sales staff! Both BPS Marketing and Kim had previously worked with Donell during her time as Executive Director of HSI Shows.
Donell is the President of Home & Garden Executives International (HGSEI). The organization formed in 1955 as a professional trade association for home, garden and flower show producers. It brings together the most successful home, garden & flower exhibition managers from the U.S. & Canada in a combined effort to promote continued excellence and professionalism.

With the ability to start a show from scratch, the focus is on quality businesses, quality exhibits with quality staff… low category repetition will set us apart from our competitors and you from yours!
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!

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!”
“I have been working with Donell and participating in her shows since 2005! 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!”
“For nearly 10 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 show producer! 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.”
“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 and now Suburban Indy Shows!
I have no doubt you will bring your energy, passion, professionalism and creativity into your new venture.”
“I have worked with Donell for over 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.”
