Advocacy and thought leadership come in many forms – from fly-ins to issue summits and industry trade shows. And while influence was once wielded behind closed doors, nowadays it’s about finding the right venue to create an echo chamber around your message.
This Washington DC 100 edition highlights two organizations that are advocating successfully. The American Hotel & Lodging Association, which recently hosted its Stars of the Industry Awards Ceremony, describes the many ways it’s innovating for the industry’s future. Additionally, Phone2Action – a cutting-edge company leveraging technology to improve civic engagement – previews its Good Tech Summit in Washington this month.
