The #LoveIndy team is proud to announce that Visit Indy received a Northstar Stella Award as a Gold Winner as Best CVB/DMO - Midwest. The Stella Awards, through Northstar Meetings Group, are the only comprehensive awards program in the meetings industry that combines public, planner voting and third-party, objective planner judging. To be recognized as a Stella Award winner, CVBs and DMOs have to finish in the top three in the public voting in their categories and rank highly with a panel of judges.
In 2023, we're celebrating Visit Indy's 100th birthday, and our mission is to turn Indianapolis into an irresistible destination that's hard to resist. Our dedication has paid off, with the city's tourism bouncing back to pre-pandemic levels.
At Visit Indy, we act as your reliable guide to all things Indy. We provide the inside scoop on events, attractions, dining options, shopping, and accommodations for business and leisure visitors alike. With unparalleled connectivity and expansive meeting spaces, a vibrant and polished downtown core, and our signature Hoosier hospitality, the Circle City is ascending with booming downtown development, including the expansion of the Indiana Convention Center and the development of an 800-room Signia by Hilton hotel.
But we're not just about business; we're also enthusiastic supporters of Indy's sports scene. We're all in for our local teams and big events like the NFL Scouting Combine, NCAA First and Second Rounds, and the Big Ten Football Championship, all happening in 2024.
In recent times, we've earned praise for our Accessibility Guide and our commitment to sustainability by tackling food waste at the convention center. Here's to a century of making Indy an extraordinary place to visit.
