U.S. Travel's Destination Capitol Hill logo with dates March 19th and 20th

Join the Maryland Tourism Coalition and 300+ industry leaders in Washington, D.C. as we head to the Hill to advance pro-travel policies and further emphasize travel as essential to every industry, community and district across the U.S. using our powerful collective voice.

The Program

Before a robust day on the Hill, we’ll gather for an informative and inspiring general session on Tuesday, March 19 for valuable networking time, insights from influential guest speakers, and a deep dive into the issues and our 2024 legislative asks.

Featured Speaker: Anna Palmer

We’re thrilled to announce our DCH keynote speaker, Anna Palmer, Founder and CEO of Punchbowl News. Previously the co-author of the top-rated POLITICO Playbook franchise, Anna has covered congressional leadership, the lobbying industry, presidential campaigns and the politics of governing for more than 15 years. Anna will share insights on the legislative playing field, predictions for the 2024 election cycle and implications for the travel industry.
