Advocacy is key to being the unified voice of the restaurant and lodging industry in SC. Hospitality Day at the State House is your opportunity to show lawmakers the impact of our now $22.6 billion industry and thank them for their continued support.


We do this by treating lawmakers, regulators and other elected officials to lunch on the State House lawn. This is an exciting opportunity to showcase your restaurant across the state and show your participation in the legislative process.
