Partnership

Become a Visit Indy Partner

From connecting with meeting planners, convention attendees, and leisure travelers to customized listings in our publications that reach millions, our partners receive numerous benefits.

Creating awareness and reaching a new audience is great for the bottom line, but being a partner is much more than smart marketing. Visit Indy partner businesses directly support an industry bringing $4.5 billion to Indianapolis each year and sustaining more than 75,000 jobs locally.

ROSE Awards

Our annual ROSE program honors non-managerial employees who excel at making Indy visitors feel welcome and special. The next event will occur May 11, 2023, at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. Citizens Energy Group presents this red carpet gala, and we invite our partners to nominate up to two employees or volunteers who exemplify service excellence in the category of accommodations, attractions, restaurants, retail, and transportation. Meet our honorees here.
