Event Description

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 Travel Industry Association, Oklahoma Restaurant Association, and Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging 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. 2023 marks the 34th anniversary of "A Tasteful Affair" and will feature more than 20 of Oklahoma’s finest restaurants showcasing their culinary tastings and craft beer at what is heralded as the state’s most successful and best attended legislative reception.
