2019 Hospitality Day and A Tasteful Affair Legislative Reception
2/6/2019 - 2/6/2019 9:30 AM - 7:00 PM
The hospitality industry is the driving force in Oklahoma’s economy, generating enormous tax revenues, providing jobs for hundreds of thousands of Oklahomans, and giving time and money back to their communities. At the same time, it’s vital that we maintain good relations with legislators so that our perspective on various bills and issues is given thoughtful consideration.
On February 6, 2019 members of the Oklahoma Restaurant Association, Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association, and Oklahoma Travel Industry Association will join forces for Hospitality Day at the Capitol, where we will spend time speaking to legislators about issues facing our industry.
Then members will mingle with more than 600 members and legislators while we do what we do best - show these leaders Oklahoma hospitality! - at a bigger and better-than-ever “A Tasteful Affair” Legislative Reception. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of "A Tasteful Affair" and will feature more than 20 of Oklahoma’s finest restaurants showcasing their culinary tastings at what is heralded as the state’s most successful and best attended legislative reception.
Due to the nature of the event, no one under 21 allowed at the Legislative Reception.
