Registration Open for Exhibitions & Conferences Alliance’s 2024 Legislative Action Day in Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, DC—The Exhibitions & Conferences Alliance (ECA) announced that registration is open for its 2024 Legislative Action Day, which will take place in Washington, DC on Thursday, May 30, 2024.

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,” said Tommy Goodwin, ECA Vice President. “But to make that happen, our elected officials need to hear from all of us. That’s why I look forward to welcoming everyone from the industry back to Capitol Hill this May for Legislative Action Day.”

Once again, this year’s ECA Legislative Action Day will be held in conjunction with the Lippman Connects Exhibition and Convention Executives Forum (ECEF), which will take place on Wednesday, May 29, 2024. In recognition of this ongoing partnership, ECA is pleased to recognize Lippman Connects as one of its 2024 Legislative Action Day platinum sponsors. 

“The success of ECA Legislative Action Day benefits every one of the leaders who will be at ECEF 2024,” said Sam Lippman, President, Lippman Connects and organizer of ECEF. “And like ECEF, we want to see this event on every executive’s calendar.”
