Issues & Advocacy

2015 Public Affairs Conference

2015 Public Affairs Conference

For the first time ever, the National Restaurant Association and the American Hotel & Lodging Association are joining forces for the NRA Public Affairs Conference and AH&LA Legislative Action Summit.Our collective events will take place April 13-15, 2015 at the Ronald Regan Building and International Trade Center.

This partnership is an incredible opportunity for our industries to come together in front of lawmakers, over three days in Washington, DC, and demonstrate the strength and prowess of the hospitality industry. The National Restaurant Association represents over 13 million employees and over $660 billion in annual sales. The American Hotel & Lodging Association represents 1.8 million employees, generating $163 billion in annual sales from 4.9 million guestrooms. Both organizations will hold individual meetings and issue briefings on April 13th and 14th, and join forces to lobby the Hill on April 15th.

Additional information, including an agenda, the hotel block information and registration details, will be available in September.

For more information about the Public Affairs Conference, please contact Caitlin Donahue, Senior Director of Political Advocacy at cdonahue@restaurant.org or (202) 331-5915.
