News for the Hospitality Executive
|MIAMI, FL —
March 24, 2011 — The
president of Fabric Innovations, a leading supplier
of bedding, drapery and custom fabrics to the hospitality industry, was
American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) delegates that
Capitol Hill recently to educate Congress on key issues that impact the
hotel industry. Deborah Herman joined an influential group of hotel and
executives that stormed Capitol Hill during the AH&LA Legislative
Summit, held March 15 and 16 in Washington DC. The group was armed with
points provided by the association’s lobbying members, outlining the
effects of pending bills on the U.S. hotel industry. As part of the
delegation, Deborah met with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,
Bill Posey and United States Senator Marco Rubio during the session.
During the session, the lobbying group also extended their support for the Travel Promotion Act, which is funded by a small portion of international visitors’ Visa fees (not funded by citizen's taxes) and promotes tourism to the United States. It was pointed out that the United States spends less on tourism promotion than the small island country of Bermuda.
The Florida delegation of the AH&LA lobbying group included notable travel industry executives representing prestigious travel companies such as Hilton Hotels, America's Best Value Inns and Intercontinental Hotels Group, that together employ over 45,000 people in the State of Florida.
