Hilton Indianapolis Hotel & Suites named 2018 CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic host hotel

The ECHL, in conjunction with the Indy Fuel, announced Tuesday that the Hilton Indianapolis Hotel & Suites will serve as the official host hotel for the 2018 CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic.

 

Serving as the ECHL Headquarters during All-Star festivities, the Hilton will host the ECHL All-Stars as well as team representatives, League VIPs and fans. Conveniently located in downtown Indianapolis, the Hilton is near Indianapolis Airport (IND), Indiana Farmers Coliseum, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, among other local attractions, and will also host the 11th Annual ECHL Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

 

The Hilton is offering a special CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic room rate for ECHL fans of $139 per night, which can be redeemed by clicking here, or by calling the Hilton at (800) 315-1906 and referencing group code ECHLFB.

 

The CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic will include NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, returning to Indianapolis where he began his professional career. Individual tickets for the League’s annual showcase, coming to Indiana Farmers Coliseum on Jan. 15, 2018, will be made available to the general public later in the fall. Fans who reserve an Indy Fuel Ticket Plan for 2017-18 (Full-Season, Half-Season, 12-Game Flex, 9-Game), will receive immediate access to All-Star Classic tickets, and may secure their seats before they are made available to the public.

 

Group packages of 25 tickets or more are available now, and can be purchased by calling 317-925-FUEL or by visiting ECHLAllStarClassic.com.

 

To begin the All-Star festivities, the Fuel will be hosting the 2018 ECHL All-Star Fan Fest on Sunday, Jan. 14, at The Pavilion at Pan Am. Located a few blocks away from the Hilton, and just steps away from Lucas Oil Stadium and Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis, this exciting event will bring fans from across the League together for a night of food, fun and interactive activities leading into the All-Star Classic. Ticket information and further details on the All-Star Fan Fest will be announced at a later date.
