Become a Visit Indy Partner

From connecting with 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 $4.4 billion to Indiana each year and sustaining more than 74,000 jobs locally.


What is Visit Indy?

As the official convention and visitors bureau for Indianapolis, it’s Visit Indy’s mission to promote Greater Indianapolis to leisure travelers, conventions, meetings, and events.

With many amazing attractions, a world class tourism-related infrastructure and our famous Hoosier Hospitality, attracting visitors has never been easier.

Each year more than 26 million people come to the Circle City and enjoy all that Indy has to offer, but that wouldn’t be possible without the support of our partners.

If you’re interested in joining us and more than 700 local businesses that support tourism in Indy, take a look at some of the many benefits of Visit Indy partnership.
