About the Event

The American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) and the Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) are uniting the hotel industry to show lawmakers the strength of our industry in what will be your most important meeting of the year.  

LAS is a unique opportunity to join together with hundreds of your colleagues to meet your congressional representatives to share your story, the story of our industry, and educate Congress on the important issues affecting the hotel and lodging business.

During the course of two days you will learn about the latest developments on the most pressing issues that are impacting hoteliers’ bottom lines.

We need your help to make these issues front and center with Congress. Join us to get the inside scoop from AHLA’s government affairs team, Members of Congress and other industry experts. You will also learn how to effectively discuss these issues and have the opportunity to build a relationship with your Member of Congress.


Your voice matters and we need you in Washington!
