Event industry professionals in the US are being urged to join the Exhibitions & Conferences Alliance (ECA) on 1-2 June or this year’s Legislative Action Day.
The ECA will lead this advocacy day for the US business events industry, beginning 1 June, 2021.
ECA will host an online programme dedicated to learning more about general advocacy, what it means to be an effective advocate, and an overview of legislative issues. Appointments with senators, House representatives and key influencers will take place virtually on 2 June, 2021.
The 1 June programme is designed to deliver the tools needed to effectively advocate on behalf of the industry. Who to contact, how to contact and what to say. This programme will be hosted online and is open to all, at no cost.
On 2 June , there will be smaller group sessions for in-depth video conferences with key legislators. Each group will have designated spokespeople and ECA will provide training.
“Whether you are new to advocacy or a seasoned pro, we invite you to participate in these important meetings. We are setting up the 2 June video conferences now, and will need all attendees to register by May 21, 2021.,” says the ECA team.
The focus of this year’s Legislative Action Days in the US will be the Hospitality and Commerce Job Recovery Act. This Bill will bring jobs back by providing recovery measures for the convention and tradeshow industries and their workers through restart credits.
So voice your concerns, share our story, and help save our industry, is the message from EC.
