Make Your Voice Heard on Capitol Hill

PCMA is proud to collaborate with the Meetings Mean Business Coalition and leading industry organizations to promote the economic benefits of the industry to U.S. Congressional Members during the 2nd annual Exhibitions Day on Capitol Hill.

You’re invited to join 150 advocates to inform Congress about the impact that exhibitions and events have on the economies of large and small communities across the country.  

And encourage Congress to consider important regulations affecting exhibitions and events today:

  • Support of The Jobs Originated Through Launching Travel (JOLT) Act to leverage the benefits of inbound international travel to the U.S. to increase economic growth, create jobs, generate tax revenue and boost exports
  • Emphasize the importance of government employee trade show participation to increase training opportunities for employees and drive economic growth

This year promises to build on the successes from 2014, when more than 100 industry advocates participated in the inaugural event and 93% of them rated their experience as “excellent”!
