mdg’s Vincent Polito, Rachel Scharmann and Lilia Dashevsky visited lawmakers on Capitol Hill on June 5 for discussions on key issues that impact the event industry’s $91 billion contribution to the U.S. Gross Domestic Product, including investments in transportation infrastructure, renewed funding for Brand USA, and passage of the JOLT Act. Exhibitions Day is an industry platform designed to facilitate face-to-face dialogue and collaboration with members of Congress. Polito, Scharmann and Dashevsky joined forces with clients, colleagues and friends with the goal of educating national leaders about these important issues and the impact of exhibitions and events.
