The U.S. Travel Association, partnering with the California Travel Association and travel and tourism industry leaders throughout Northern California, held its first ever Bay Area Travel & Tourism Roundtable last month at the Santa Clara Convention Center. The event featured California 17th District Congressman Mike Honda and several members of his congressional staff.

Policy matters discussed included the “Jobs Originated through Launching Travel” (JOLT) Act; reauthorization of the Travel Promotion Act (TPA) and Brand USA; and the Global Entry program. According to U.S. Travel Association representative Michael Jacobson “of the many events we’ve done similar to this, this event was the most engaged between attendees and Congressman.”

Participating organizations included California’s Great America, Destination Advantage, Mineta San Jose International Airport, San Francisco Travel Association, Santa Clara CVB, Santa Cruz CVC, and Visit Tri-Valley. After the event, Congressman Honda and the roundtable participants toured the 49ers new Levi’s Stadium.
