The Hospitality Industry Join Forces for Annual "A Tasteful Affair" Legislative Reception
03.04.21
On April 14, 2021 members of the Oklahoma Restaurant Association, Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association and Oklahoma Travel Industry Association join forces to gather for Oklahoma’s annual “A Tasteful Affair” Legislative Reception. The hospitality industry is the driving force in Oklahoma's economy, generating enormous tax revenues, providing jobs for hundreds of thousands of Oklahomans, and giving time and money back to their communities. At the same time, it's vital that we maintain good relations with legislators so that our perspective on various bills and issues is given a thoughtful consideration. Stay tuned for 2021 registration!
