Welcome to Indiana Convention Center


Welcome To Your Next Great Event!


Thank you for selecting the Indiana Convention Center and Centerplate to hold your event. Centerplate is the exclusive Caterer for the Indiana Convention Center. We offer special event consulting and custom catering for all types of events. Please note that no food or beverages of any kind may be brought into the facility by the patron, any of the patronís guests or the invitees. While our menus offer a variety of items to choose from, your catering representative and our executive chef will be happy to work with you to create custom menus for your event.


Centerplate offers a complete selection of beverages to compliment your function. Please note that the State of Indiana Liquor Laws regulate alcoholic beverages and services. Centerplate is responsible for the administration of these regulations. Alcoholic beverages may not be brought onto the premises from outside sources. We reserve the right to refuse alcohol service to intoxicated or underage persons. Alcoholic beverages may not be removed from the premises.


A signed copy of the Event Orders and Banquet Contract must be returned to the Catering Department within seven (7) business days after receipt. The signed contract with its stated terms and addendum (if applicable) constitutes the entire agreement between the client and Centerplate.


Prices are quoted ninety (90) days in advance of an event, but are subject to change due to fluctuating market prices. However, once you have made your menu selection, the menu prices will be guaranteed sixty (60) days. A 21% house charge and 9% sales tax will be applied to all food and beverage sales. If the customer is a tax-exempt organization, Centerplate requires a copy of the Indiana Tax Exempt Certificate with your signed Banquet Contract. If a certificate is not received prior to invoicing, Indiana Sales Tax will be collected on all invoices.


An estimated number of guests is required at the initial event booking. A guaranteed number of attendees per event order is required 72 hours, or by noon three (3) business days prior to the function date, (business days are defined as Monday through Friday). If the guarantee is not received as stated, the Catering Department will charge for the number of persons specified in the Event Contract. The guarantee is not subject to a reduction after the 72-hour deadline. Increases in attendance given after the final guarantee deadline may be subject to additional charges.

Centerplate will not be responsible or liable for serving these additional guests, but will do so based upon the availability of product. At our discretion, Centerplate will set and be prepared to serve 5 percent over the final guarantee, to a maximum of 30 people.


Full payment, based on the final guarantee, is payable by company or cashierís check prior to the start of the event. Any adjustments, additions or replenishments of the contracted catering services will be reflected in a final invoice, with payment due 10 days from invoice date. For your convenience, payment may also be made by MasterCard, Visa or American Express.


For cancellation of contracted services less than two (2) weeks but more than 72 hours prior to event, Centerplate is to be reimbursed for any and all labor and unrecoverable product expenses incurred in conjunction with planning for the event. Any event cancelled less than 72 hours prior to event will forfeit the 75% deposit.


Lunch and dinner services are based on five (5) hours which includes two (2) hours for banquet set-up, two (2) hours for service and one (1) hour for clean-up.

Breakfast and reception service is based on four (4) hours which includes one (1) hour for set-up, two (2) hours for service and one (1) hour for clean-up.
