Joann McKinney
Executive Director
Horizon Convention Center

The Horizon Convention Center is all about creating events, and connecting people.

For more than 28 years, the Horizon Convention Center has been the premier place in Muncie for hosting conventions, exhibits, fundraisers, social events, and more.

In March alone, the Horizon Convention Center hosted 27 events bringing in over 4,500 people to the convention center with an economic impact of more than $300,000. The Horizon Convention Center sales team is continually marketing to meeting and event planners from out of town to persuade them to bring their conventions and events here.

Our outside sales manager is hard at work making connections at events and tradeshows and selling the attributes of our city. In the meantime, representatives from our team attend many local events and meetings to stay connected with Muncie.

With the new, attached 150-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel, the Horizon Convention Center’s ability to attract new business has grown exponentially.  We have signed contracts and are in negotiations with many more new clients who would have not chosen Muncie were it not for the combination of the convention center with an attached hotel.
