While AADE’s Annual Meeting Program Committee of diabetes educators is committed to putting together a top-notch education program for AADE17, the Meeting Services team (us!) is working hard to make sure attendees have a great experience outside of the sessions.
We spent countless hours in Indianapolis, ensuring we secured the lowest hotel room rates for you. Most of these hotels connect to the convention center via sky bridges, so you never have to step outside in the heat– something I know we all appreciate in August!
If shopping is your thing, know that the Hyatt sky bridge connects to the Circle Centre Mall, so you can get some great shopping done before and after sessions.
On a recent trip to Indy, our team had some time to explore a trendy area called Massachusetts Avenue (also known as Mass Ave). This five-block area is filled with great local restaurants, bars, art galleries and numerous eclectic and independent boutiques.
What were our favorite eateries, you ask? Well...wait for it!
Our favorite restaurant was The Eagle, known for their southern comfort food and great hospitality. We also really like St. Elmo’s Steakhouse for their legendary shrimp cocktail sauce and actual cocktails (and no, Rob Lowe did not serve us).
