Aim Ideas Summit

The Aim Ideas Summit spotlights just how comprehensive our commitment is to accelerating Indiana municipalities. We pack in more than 150 exhibitors, organizations, and state agencies specializing in municipal government solutions, an exciting mix of speakers, workshops, networking opportunities, and one-on-one consultations into a mere three days.


Details for the 2017 conference are coming in and we’re going back to Evansville for the first time since 2007! Mark your calendar now to head down south October 10-12.


Aim President and Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will host us at the Old National Events Plaza and brand new DoubleTree by Hilton Evansville. Check this page frequently for additional conference information, upcoming deadlines, registration information, speaker highlights, and much more!
