The Exhibitions & Conferences Alliance announced that its Legislative Action Days will take place on June 1-2.
A lot has changed in the past 12 months, even though it feels as if time has moved slowly. Staffers come and go on the Hill, and with a new administration comes new priorities. The ECA’s priority is the Hospitality and Commerce Job Recovery Act. This bill brings jobs back by providing recovery measures for the convention and trade show industries and their workers through restart credits.
On June 1, ECA will host a program designed to give industry players the necessary tools to effectively advocate on behalf of the industry, such as who to contact, how to contact them and what to say. This program will be hosted online and is open to all, at no cost.
On June 2, ECA will invite small groups to in-depth video conferences with key legislators. Each group will have designated spokespeople, and training will be provided. These meetings are opened to people new to advocacy as well as seasoned pros.
To register, visit eca.customreg.net/register/7643fe62-0cf1-44cd-b4f2-7cbd3fc0b49c. Registrations must be received by May 21.
