ROSE is an acronym for Recognition Of Service Excellence. The program shines a light on the waiters, cab drivers, service associates, and other non-managerial hospitality employees that make every Indianapolis visitor feel special. By going beyond the expectations of their job descriptions, these service champions leave lasting impressions that bring true meaning to the phrase “Hoosier Hospitality.”
Every year we gather to honor these goodwill ambassadors at a gala event which is an awards ceremony and, moreover, a celebration of an industry and the people who roll up their sleeves and do their jobs every day with pride in their companies and their city. Due to continued concerns over the pandemic, we will be recognizing Indy’s hospitality community a little differently this year.
Mark your calendars for Celebrating Indy’s Resiliency on Tuesday, May 4, at 3:30 p.m. This hybrid event will be a combination of the Annual State of Tourism and ROSE Awards, timed with U.S. Travel Association’s “National Travel & Tourism Week.” There will not be a traditional nomination system for this event. The link to RSVP will be posted here when it is available.
