We love Indy, and the best way to show off this incredible destination is to immerse guests in all the great entertainment, fun, and top-rated experiences our city has to offer. Since our founding in 1989, Accent Indy continues to lead the DMC industry and create memorable experiences for planners and guests alike.
We remain the first choice for hundreds of corporations, associations and conventions meeting in Indy each year. Our local, hands-on ownership and being the only DMC in Indiana accredited by the Association of Destination Management Executives International (ADMEI), set Accent Indy apart from the rest.

Where do I begin? The Accent Indy team is one of the best, hands down. Their ideas are innovated, creative, ever changing and endless. I am always excited when I get to work with them. They are able to handle so many aspects of an event which makes my life, as a planner, easier and I allows me to focus on my client. I never have a doubt in my mind that an event will be amazing and my clients will be happy when I have Accent Indy on my side.
