INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (November 29, 2018) – 20 automobile manufacturers from around the world will display their 2019 model automobiles, SUVs, light-duty trucks and luxury vans at the 105th Indianapolis Auto Show. America’s second-longest-running auto show returns to the Indiana Convention Center Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018 through Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019.

In addition to all the new model vehicles, auto manufacturers will feature their specialty vehicles and more. Consumers will be able to speak with automotive product specialists surrounded by spectacular exhibits. Tens of thousands of consumers are expected to attend this annual event.

State Farm Insurance, in partnership with Hasbro, would like to welcome Indianapolis Auto Show attendees to The Game of Life, a fully-interactive auto show experience built for those who love cars just as much as we do. As State Farm is “here to help life go right,” this year’s space allows consumers to become an oversized game piece and experience The Game of Life through the lens of car-buying decisions, from their first car to their retirement RV.

The activation includes an oversized game spinner, tablet interactives, photo opportunities and a digital scoreboard, encouraging participants to try their luck at the high score. As a “thank you” for participation, auto show attendees can walk away from the experience with their own branded tote bag. Talk to a State Farm agent about your life goals. While you’re at it, get an auto quote.

We are happy to have the Indiana Blood Center at the show again this year. The Indiana Blood Center will have one blood mobile as well as a small four-bed blood drive setup inside the Auto Show space at the Convention Center. Founded in 1952, Indiana Blood Center is a non-profit organization and vital community resource dedicated to providing a continuous, safe and adequate supply of blood components and biological services first to people of our own communities, then wherever needed. This is done through the dedication of 350 associates and the commitment of more than 90,000 Hoosiers blood donors. To join Indiana Blood Center’s life-giving cause or for more information, visit http://www.indianablood.org.

Visitors to the Ivy Tech Community College booth can interact with faculty and hands-on equipment from the automotive technology program. They can also take a virtual tour, grab giveaways, and enroll on the spot to be entered to win a scholarship at the college.

We are also proud to announce The Indianapolis Star as a “Gold Sponsor.”

“This year’s 105th show has so much to offer. The manufacturers are optimistic and the consumer gets to see why they are so excited,” said Steve Baker, president of The Indianapolis Automobile Trade Association. “We’ve utilized every inch of the space to make the most of your visit. Come out and spend some time with family and friends during the holidays at the 2019 Indy Auto Show. We know you won’t be disappointed!”
