The Long Island Hospitality and Leisure Association (LIH&LA) is dedicated to promoting tourism on Long Island by working with those that are in the hospitality industry throughout Long Island. The association invites all industry leaders to get directly involved. Whether one is an owner of a particular business that is service orientated, or one assists in managing such a business, your voice is important to us. To find out more please visit the Events page, or please feel free to contact us through the Contact Us page.
The LIH&LA has numerous events one can attend, which includes but is not limited to educational seminars, various symposiums with guest speakers and industry leaders, membership meetings, fundraising events, and more. The Association hosts its events at various locations, and typically with those that are active members. The LIH&LA also works with and supports other local industry associations that promote Long Island as a premier tourism destination. The association works closely with colleges and universities throughout Long Island that have tourism and hospitality related programs such as Nassau County Community College, Suffolk County Community College, St. Joseph's College and the New York Institute of Technology. One of the main goals of the LIH&LA is to ensure that young people across the Island are well prepared for the industry, as they are the ones that are the future of the industry, and the dynamics of the hospitality industry as a whole are always changing.
The Long Island Hospitality and Leisure Association works in association with Discover Long Island, as well as the New York State Hospitality & Tourism Association (NYSH&TA). If you're planning on visiting Long Island, or even if you're a resident, we suggest that you visit Discover Long Island's website to learn more about all there is to do on Long Island. There, one may also request an official Long Island Travel Guide. For those that are planning a corporate event, and are seeking the perfect location to meet your specific needs, one may request an exclusive Long Island Meeting Planner's Guide, which showcases venues in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
Discover Long Island divides Long Island up into four regions, as each region is quite different, and each one offers visitors a unique experience. The regions consist of the North Shore, South Shore, North Fork and South Fork. Through Discover Long Island's website and/or by utilizing the Long Island Travel Guide, one may truly "discover Long Island" and everything that relates to the hospitality and tourism industry, which includes many of our friends and associates ready to be at your service.
Please keep in mind, although Queens and Brooklyn are part of Long Island, they are also boroughs of New York City, and are promoted as such. When it comes to the Long Island tourism and hospitality industry, the focus is on Nassau County and Suffolk County, which is where the four tourism regions are geographically located.
