Read Mr. Fertitta's full bio.


For 25 years, the Texas Travel Industry's Unity Dinner has provided industry professionals with the opportunity to educate state legislators and local elected officials on the importance of the travel industry to the Texas economy. Over the years, we have stressed that Travel Matters to Texas, Travel Means Jobs, and the Business of Travel keeps the Texas economy strong.  Join us on February 24th for the industry's largest Advocacy event of the year and make sure to invite your legislators and local officials to join you at your table as we thank our friends in the Legislature and celebrate how together we have made Life Better in a State of Travel

The Silent Auction Fundraiser, held the evening of the 25th Anniversary Texas Travel Industry Unity Dinner, allows you to support TTIA's advocacy efforts and other programs. 

The following day, Unity Dinner attendees and industry professionals from across the state will meet with our state legislators during the Converge on the Capitol.  Be among the hundreds of Texas travel industry representatives who will bring a powerful message to our legislators that the travel industry in Texas is important to the state's economy and that Life's Better in a State of Travel.
