We wanted to post this to show that we are not alone in our opinion of how well Indianapolis pulled off this great event and everything that went with it:
An open letter from Tamara Zahn, Indianapolis Downtown, Inc. president:
As out-of-town Super Bowl guests leave the city, they take with them an awesome impression of Downtown Indianapolis and our community. And based on the calls and e-mails we have received from around the country, game viewers had the same impression. Here’s what a couple media voices had to say:
According to USA Today, “Players and media hailed the convenience of the city. Said Giants guard Chris Snee, ‘You feel like you’re in the middle of everything.’ To those who know the Circle City, that sounds about right.”
Darren Rovell, CNBC , summed up what many thought, “Indianapolis is the best Super Bowl City I’ve ever seen.”
Thanks and congratulations to the Super Bowl Host Committee and our many IDI partners who worked with us to make Downtown shine in the national spotlight and provide guests with a SUPER experience. Other cities will try to emulate our Downtown experience, but Indy’s spirit of collaboration and partnership is hard to match.
