Through U.S. Travel’s new Power Hour program, U.S. Travel member organizations across the country can host in-district roundtables with their representatives in Congress and community stakeholders with the goals of:

  • Growing bipartisan support for the travel industry’s legislative agenda and strengthening travel champions within Congress.
  • Showcasing the positive economic, jobs and community impact that travel delivers in every pocket of America.
  • Connecting lawmakers with local businesses and employees to provide real in-district examples of the power of travel.

How It Works:

While the U.S. Travel team will reach out to initiate Power Hours, we want to hear from you should you wish to host a member of your congressional delegation.

Your Role:

Our team will collaborate with you on the details of the event— with the goal of ensuring a meaningful conversation and telling the real story of travel’s impact on communities across the country. We ask that you suggest a location and list of attendees you would like to invite.

Additional Support:

U.S. Travel will work with your team to secure local media coverage of the event or develop an op-ed in a local publication if the Member of Congress agrees. We will also provide sample social media copy for all participants to use in thanking the elected official for attending.
