Destination Capitol Hill Goes Virtual

Destination Capitol Hill is the US travel industry's main lobbying event, which every year would bring travel professionals from across the US to Washington DC. Due to COVID, the event went virtual this year. Working with the US Travel Association and tourism professionals from across the country, GANYC members Patrick Casey Harvey Davidson, Kitt Garrett, Kevin Lawrence, and John Semlak have been meeting today with Senators and Representatives to advocate for government support of the travel and tourism industry. We thank the members who volunteered to represent us.

Below is a screenshot of one meeting in session.

We are thankful to congressional leadership over the past year for aid provided to out-of-work guides, and to new wins, like the expanded PPP legislation which cleared the House last night. Over the next several months, the tourism industry will continue to need the support of those in Washington, as this crucial industry begins its recovery.
