Legislators and Travel Agents Gathered at ASTA Summit

Travel agents along with the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) met the industry’s legislators on June 07 in Washington, D.C. at the inaugural and highly-anticipated ASTA Capitol Summit 2017 held at Watergate Hotel.

The event was a platform for discussing critical issues shaping the corporate and leisure travel economy and an opportunity to present legislative priorities to congress officials that meet the objectives of both the government and travel community.

During some 100 scheduled meetings, participants discussed, among others, the challenges related to the travel agent retail fairness act, lifting the Cuba travel ban and lessening the impact of new disclosures travel agents are required to make to consumers when selling air travel.
