Thermo Scientific Annual Customer Appreciation Event

Spend an afternoon having some serious fun before the serious science starts. Hit the bowling lanes with your colleagues. Challenge your friends old and new to a game of darts, ping-pong, Foosball, bocce ball, billiards, or wall Scrabble. Feel like you’re a kid again when you play vintage arcade games. Pretend you’re Bruce Springsteen or Beyonce in the Karaoke rooms. There will be plenty of food and refreshments, as well as quieter areas where you can network and socialize.

Punch Bowl Social

Punch Bowl Social is located in the Circle Center Mall at 120 South Meridian Street. It’s a short five-minute walk from The Westin Indianapolis and convenient to many downtown hotels and the Indiana Convention Center.
