Legislative Action Week 2022


ECA Legislative Action Week took place virtually from June 6-10, 2022.

This week-long virtual event brought together advocates and leaders from across the business events industry to meet with their members of Congress about the vital role that face-to-face business events play in expanding economies and helping communities across the United States recover from the devastating economic and employment impacts of the pandemic.

Here is the ECA Legislative Action Week kickoff broadcast video, produced by platinum sponsor CNTV!
