History


Founded in 1987, the Oklahoma Travel Industry Association was formed primarily to provide tourism education and lobby on behalf of the tourism industry as well as support the efforts of the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department in its funding of the State's tourism promotion campaign.  In 1992, OTIA developed an alliance with the Oklahoma Restaurant Association and Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association to provide administrative services and support membership education initiatives statewide.  

The Oklahoma Travel Industry Association invites you to actively contribute in building a progressive and prosperous future for tourism in Oklahoma. Your support of the tourism industry, through OTIA membership, provides benefits and training for tourism related businesses and citizens throughout Oklahoma. It also helps us monitor and protect tourism industry interests at the state capitol and nationally through our affiliation with the U.S. Travel Association.
