Our Preferred Caterers

Here at the FORUM Conference and Events Center, we have a variety of selections when it comes to catering. Rather than limiting your options to one exclusive caterer, we work off a list of seven preferred vendors that fit a wide range of budgets and tastes. Take a further look at what our preferred caterers have to offer to see which vendor best fits your needs…

However, this family-owned business offers a great deal more with their 20 years of catering experience. Whether you want comfort food or fancy dishes, Jonathon Byrd’s will serve your chosen meal with a helping of hospitality.

Feeling overwhelmed with all the delicious options? FORUM’s management team is here to guide you in the right direction based on your budget and needs.

Perhaps you are itching to explore further? Our preferred caterers are long-standing, trusted vendors, but the last thing we want to do is refrain you from creating a perfect event designed specifically for you. That’s why we choose to be one of the very few Indianapolis venues that also allows you to explore catering options outside of our preferred vendor list for a very affordable fee.

Your options are endless with our preferred caterers that are ready to design your next unique event menu.

Until next time,
