The North Carolina Travel Industry Association has provided industry professionals with the opportunity to educate state legislators and elected officials on the importance of travel and tourism to North Carolina’s economy. Tourism is a significant source of revenue for both state and local governments and its impact on businesses keeps North Carolina’s economy strong. Join us on February 12th for the industry’s largest advocacy event of the year. Together we will thank our legislators for supporting positive public policy and give them the information they need to build a better tourism economy.

The Tourism Day Legislative Reception is one of the most popular among legislators. This is the one time of year when they expect to meet with local tourism constituents and talk tourism. Don’t miss this chance to be heard.
