The Americas Jamboree will take place in downtown Indianapolis, IN at the Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) University Place Conference Center & Hotel and at the JW Marriott Indianapolis.

Unlike most downtowns, Indianapolis comes alive after dark—especially in the blocks surrounding the Jamboree location. Over 200 restaurants and clubs, live music and shows, and a four-story shopping mall are all right there, in the heart of everything, when you're ready to relax or have some fun. And when you're ready to go back to your room, you just stand up and walk there—it's a campus-like feel, with no tedious shuttling back and forth through endless traffic.

See the Pre-Regional Jamboree section for additional information about hotel and travel.
