This Event has concluded for 2016. The following is for informational purposes only.

For 26 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 23rd 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 honor how together we have made Life Better in a State of Travel. Click here for a letter you can use to invite your state legislators to join you at the 26th Annual Texas Travel Industry Unity Dinner.

The Silent Auction Fundraiser, held the evening of the 26th Annual Texas Travel Industry Unity Dinner, allows you to support TTIA's advocacy efforts and other programs.

We are pleased to honor the recipient of the 2016 Silver Spur Award, The Honorable Larry Taylor, Chairman, Senate Public Education Committee.

Senator Taylor has been a friend to TTIA and the Texas travel industry for many years and has supported our efforts in the legislature. He helps to ensure that Life's Better in a State of Travel for all Texans.

Senator Taylor is a lifelong Texan, born in southeast Texas and raised in Friendswood. He attended Baylor University where he received his BBA in 1982. Senator Taylor serves as the Chairman of the Senate Public Education Committee and as a member of the Senate Finance, Business and Commerce and Intergovernmental Relations Committees. Before his election to the Texas Senate in 2012, Senator Taylor served five terms in the Texas House of Representatives.


We welcome a recognized and respected innovator in education, Andrew Kim, Superintendent of the Comal Independent School District, to the dinner program. 

Mr. Kim will share his ideas on how Texas public schools and the Texas travel industry can partner on education innovations that will better educate our school children, better meet the needs of travel and tourism, and drive economic growth to improve the quality of life in Texas.

Mr. Kim holds a Masters in Educational Administration from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Arts in Medieval Studies and Classical Civilization from Fordham University, Bronx, New York.
