Destination Statehouse

Join colleagues from across Kansas in representing the travel industry at the 2018 Destination Statehouse event being held February 7, 2018, in Topeka. In today’s political world there is a simple but profound reality. If you are not at the table…most likely you are lunch. Join the TIAK team in creating a positive and cooperative relationship with your state elected officials.

At this year’s event, attendees will begin the day at the Dillon House hearing from a speaker from Destinations International on the “Weaponization of Tourism” before a legislative buffalo burger lunch co-hosted with our partners from the Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks & Tourism. Afterwards, spend the day at the Statehouse visiting with your legislators and discussing face to face the issues of our industry.

The day wouldn’t be complete without exhibiting with your regional partners or your special coalition at the much anticipated evening event held in the Regency Ballroom at the Topeka Ramada Inn. This year the theme is Celebrating the Economic Impact of Sports Tourism. We encourage all regions to invite their local mascots from any sports teams or colleges and to create a sports-themed game, giveaway or other unique storytelling the impact of sporting tourism.

This is one of the most attended legislative events of the year so come out and support your Travel Industry Team at the 2018 TIAK Destination Statehouse.

Sponsorships for the evening event are currently available and registration for the entire day can be found on the TIAK Website, so be sure to visit and sign up today for the 2018 TIAK Destination Statehouse, February 7th, Topeka.

Questions from regions or on the evening event theme can be directed to the Advocacy Committee Chairman, Jim Zaleski, or 620.820.3556.

See you there…
