Industry partners will discuss statewide issues facing the tourism industry and how lawmakers can be effective advocates.
"Bills that are proposed that support the travel industry or don't hurt the travel industry are very important as well. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of those, but sometimes they do come up and people don't always understand the repercussion of bills, unless someone from that industry goes forth and explains it from our perspective," President and CEO of the Reno-Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority Chris Baum says.
Baum also explains it's critical legislators understand Northern Nevada is a four-season destination.
For example, the RSCVA announced last week there's an effort to attract more sports related business to Reno-Tahoe.
This year the area is going to host 12 different sports related events.
"A big volleyball tournament that would be 20,000 room nights of hotel business which is bigger than an average convention," Baum says. "When they're not playing, mom, dad, sister, and brother are out as tourists spending money in our local community," Baum says.
Nevada Tourism Day starts at 10 a.m. at the Nevada Legislature.
