ECA Legislative Action Day 2024



Thank you for your interest in ECA Legislative Action Day 2024! At this time, the event has sold out and registration is closed. If you have any questions, please email Tommy Goodwin at


ECA’s 2024 Legislative Action Day will bring industry leaders and advocates from across the business events ecosystem to Washington, DC to meet with policymakers on Capitol Hill about ECA’s top federal policy priorities, including helping the industry attract and train its next generation workforce and further reducing visa wait times.

In 2024, Congress has the opportunity to positively impact our industry’s ability to drive economic growth, support job creation, and empower small businesses nationwide. But to make that happen, our elected officials need to hear from all of us! That's why it's so important that everyone from the industry joins us on Capitol Hill on Thursday, May 30, 2024 for ECA’s 2024 Legislative Action Day!

For those of you who have joined ECA previously for Legislative Action Day, we look forward to welcoming you back. If 2024 will be your first Legislative Action Day, check out this recap from last year to see what you can expect on Thursday, May 30.

Once again, this year’s ECA Legislative Action Day will be held in conjunction with two fantastic events hosted by industry leaders also taking place in Washington, DC.


On Tuesday, May 28, mdg, a Freeman Company, will present From Hypothetical to Reality: How AI is Actually Changing Events, an executive roundtable in conjunction with Lippman Connects’ Exhibition and Convention Executives Forum and the Society of Independent Show Organizers. This highly anticipated session will move the conversation about Artificial Intelligence in events from the realm of possibility into the realm of reality. Event organizers can RSVP for this session here.


On Wednesday, May 29, the Lippman Connects Exhibition and Convention Executives Forum (ECEF) will bring together association and independent organizers to exchange insights, trade opportunities, and develop top-to-top relationships. In recognition of our ongoing partnership with Lippman Connects, ECA is pleased to recognize Lippman Connects as one of its 2024 Legislative Action Day platinum sponsors! To register for ECEF, please click here.

ECA would like to thank our generous ECA Legislative Action Day sponsors!
