Experience Hoosier hospitality firsthand!

Get connected and acclimated to your new surroundings at an in-person event. You’ll meet fellow newcomers, get a “welcome home” from local leaders, and learn how to get plugged into the community. You can get involved right away, or ease your way in–whatever fits your style.

One-on-one attention

You’ve got questions: Where can I find the best burger in town? Which festivals should I check out? Who can I trust for childcare?

Our Navigators have answers. They’re proud ambassadors, guiding you on a one-on-one basis as you settle in. We’ll pair you with someone who has similar interests to yours, so you know you’re getting expert advice.
