This widely-attended event will be held in the Rayburn House Office Building foyer, overlooking the U.S. Capitol, during National Travel & Tourism Week. Policymakers, their staff, and members of the media will have the opportunity to interact with Travel Tech member companies and learn about their work to make the travel experience more transparent, competitive, and innovative for consumers. 

The Showcase will feature remarks by Travel Tech President & CEO Laura Chadwick, who will present two awards to members of Congress selected by the Travel Tech Board of Directors. These awards will mark the achievements of these policymakers to empower traveler choice and champion travel innovation.

“Twenty-five years ago, our industry pioneers knew public policy supporting transparency, competition, and innovation would be essential to innovating the travel sector,” said Chadwick. “These same issues are as relevant today as they were back then. We look forward to celebrating both our history and our future at our Policy & Innovation Showcase.”
