Taking it to the capitol with the state top industry at the forefront.

The Hawaii Lodging and Tourism Association will host its second annual "Tourism Day at the Capitol" this week.

HLTA says they are always looking for ways to improve the industry. 

During the education briefing portion of the event, the association will present its top priorities with lawmakers, including the importance of establishing an airport authority and ways to help the state's homeless issue. 

"This is a way for us to work together hand in hand, but we also want every to know that it's an industry we can't take for granted. We can't just expect good things will continue to come, in the years to come... we have to continue to work at it," HLTA President and CEO Mufi Hannemann said.

Through exhibits and displays HLTA will stress the importance of partnerships, legislative priorities and the hospitality industry.

Tourism Day at the State Capitol will take place this Tuesday, February 21, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The exhibits and the seminar will be open to the public.
