The Indianapolis 500 Brings Business to Neighbors Including Johnson County
As the largest sports venue in the world, hosting up to 400,000 fans, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway attracts visitors from around the globe to the nine-county region. The IBJ estimated that the economic impact of the Indy 500 on the region alone is over $200 million, surpassing the Super Bowl.
“Anytime there is a massive event like the Indy 500, we certainly see a bump in hotel room bookings, restaurant reservations and overall visitor spending from the many visitors who come to Johnson County,” said Ken Kosky, Executive Director of Festival Country Indiana.
