    The U.S. Travel Association has led a campaign alleging that black lists exist effectively preventing federal agencies and their staff from booking meetings and conferences in certain tourism destinations such as Orlando.

    So far no federal agencies has acknowledged that they do. The allegations started last winter when financial companies that received federal bailout money were criticized for holding corporate meetings in resort destinations.

    The White House has said it would oppose such practices.

    A couple of years ago our agency booked the Coronado Springs Resort for a conference and this past year they were in Anaheim.
