The Wyoming Hospitality and Travel Coalition has a seasoned, respected lobbyist that is at the Wyoming Capitol every single day of the legislature. We are engaged with local, state and federal decision makers throughout the year. Partnerships with the National Restaurant Association, the American Hotel and Lodging Associationand the U.S. Travel Association provide representation on issues that impact the hospitality and travel industry at the federal level. We have our hand on the pulse on ANYTHING politically that affects our industry, and we get the job done. Examples of how the Wyoming Hospitality and Travel Coalition has helped your bottom line:
Wyoming was in the top 5 LEAST restricted states during COVID, and we had direct communication with Governor Gordon and his team throughout the pandemic, ensuring the industry's voice was being considered.
We helped in passing the Covid19 liability protection bill during the special session, protecting business from Covid related lawsuits.
We worked to defeat a corporate income tax bill focused SOLEY on hospitality and retail, multiple times.
We helped defeat a bill that would have extended the sales tax audit look back periods from 3 years to 5 years.
We defeated a proposal to eliminate the Wyoming Office of Tourism and instead…
We significantly INCREASED the state tourism budget to be more competitive with our surrounding states. The next 5 years will see many more travelers coming to Wyoming, and therefore to your business, as a result.
We have strengthened local tourism promotion efforts and work with nearly all Destination Marketing Organizations (DMO’s) around the state.
