It’s an amazing feeling to get to pick you who do business with! That feeling goes two ways…
- YOU get to browse many experts at our shows and select who you feel most comfortable with handling your next project!
- WE get to showcase only the best exhibitors!
In our years of show production experience, we have learned which exhibitors people want to see and which ones they avoid eye contact with while sprinting by their booth! Our goal is to create a show with hassle-free aisles, therefore…
Those aggressive, pushy exhibitors are not welcome at Suburban Indy Shows!
Sure, with over 200 exhibits its very unlikely you’re going to be interested in every one… but our goal is to allow you to relax as you walk the aisles and quite simply, enjoy the show!
Hassle-free aisles, mean no pushy exhibitors allowed!
This is an area for shoppers! Shoppers who love to support local business and those who handcraft their products!
We’ll have exhibitors from Suburban Indy showcasing cash and carry style products that you’ll love! Here’s a list of retail products our neighbors can expect to find at the show!
Recycled/upcycled products, honey and syrup based deliciousness, homemade bath and body products, candles, aprons, towels, kitchen gadgets, artisan chocolate, hand painted items, stained glass, hand made furniture and other wood products, Hoosier-based merchandise, fall fashion, living walls, living fences, moss walls, spices, sauces, dips, fall nursery plants and decor, storage solutions, wine and more!
