Indianapolis Will Host NRA Convention In April

The NRA will hold its annual conference in Indianapolis this year.

Indianapolis expects at least 65,000 NRA members for the gun rights group‘s annual gathering this year.

The convention will be April 25-27 at the Indiana Convention Center.

The NRA signed the deal in 2010 and announced it to its members, but asked Indianapolis‘s convention bookers to hold off on publicizing the event.

Visit Indy spokesman Chris Gahl says the NRA isn’t the only group to ask Visit Indy to Hold off an announcement about its event.

“We booked a major sports related convention and event and they’ve asked us not to but the customer isn’t ready to make that public,” he says.

Country stars Alabama, Sara Evans and Joe Nichols will perform for NRA delegates. The group hasn‘t announced its lineup of speakers yet.

Last year‘s meeting in Houston featured former Republican presidential hopefuls Rick Perry and Rick Santorum, former GOP vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton, conservative talk show hosts Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck, and rocker Ted Nugent.
