The Recognition of Service Excellence (“ROSE”) Award honors employees in the tourism and hospitality industry who positively enhance a visitor’s experience during their stay in the Louisville area. The awards cover several categories and are presented to employees who distinguish themselves through enthusiasm and exemplary service. We encourage you to nominate a special individual for a 2021 ROSE Award.

The Louisville Tourism Annual Luncheon and Recognition of Service Excellence Awards will be held Thursday, October 28, at the Galt House Hotel, with a reception beginning at 5:30 pm and the awards luncheon at 6:30 pm.

All finalists are invited to attend the ROSE awards with a guest of their choice, and organizations that nominated the star employee are encouraged to attend to support their finalist.
