It’s Official – New Hospitality Buyers' Guide Features Industry Products and Services

The Oklahoma Restaurant Association, the Oklahoma Hotel and Lodging Association and the Oklahoma Travel Industry Association (“the Associations”) have launched their new Oklahoma Hospitality Buyers’ Guide (“the Guide”).
The Associations are proud to provide their members with this valuable, easily accessible, year-round resource. “Our comprehensive Guide offers access to a vast network of industry suppliers,” said Patti Colley, Chief Strategy Officer. “We’re pleased to offer such a needed resource, which will greatly assist industry professionals in making purchasing decisions throughout the year.”

The Guide features updated and expanded supplier and product listings, in addition to other information relating to the hospitality industry. The Guide provides users with an efficient way to browse for goods and services and offers hospitality suppliers and companies exceptional visibility by showcasing their products and services to a targeted, industry-specific buyer group.
Association members and Key Club Partners will receive specific designations next to their listings. Additionally, suppliers deciding to purchase banner ads, or Priority, Showcase, and Featured listings will have upgraded placement in the Guide. Association Allied Members receive a complimentary Basic Listing as a benefit of membership.
The Guide will be accessible at or through the Association websites at,, or
We encourage operators to visit the site regularly when searching for suppliers and services; and for suppliers you to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to highlight your products.
