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 $5.6 billion to Indianapolis each year and sustaining more than 83,000 jobs locally.
Our annual ROSE program honors non-managerial employees who excel at making Indy visitors feel welcome and special. 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. The next date for ROSE is May 9, 2024, at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. Meet past honorees here.
