Event Description

The Hospitality Day at the Capitol and the "A Tasteful Affair" Legislative Reception events are members-only events. OHLA and OTIA members, please register as Guests and select what association you are with when registering.

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 April 25, 2023 members of the Oklahoma Restaurant Association, Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association, and Oklahoma Travel Industry Association will join forces for Hospitality Day at the Capitol, a members-only event where we will spend time speaking to legislators about issues facing our industry. 

Then members will mingle with more than 500 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. "A Tasteful Affair" 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.
