Rose Awards 28th Show

Save the date! The 28th Annual ROSE Awards are scheduled for Thursday, March 21, 2019. Nominations for the 2019 ROSE Awards are now open. For information or to purchase tickets please contact the Visit Indy offices at 317-262-3000.


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 March 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.

If you have questions about ROSE Awards nominations, please contact:

“March 28, 2012 was one of the most memorable nights of my hospitality career. From the ceremony, including the limo ride, red carpet and dinner to the testimonial about me made an evening I will never forget. To me the ROSE Awards for hospitality workers compares to the Academy Awards for Hollywood.”
