The Hawai‘i Tourism Conference begins next week featuring dozens of diverse sessions, presentations, panels and special events, all centered around the theme of Transforming Tourism Together and focused on Hawai‘i’s future as a global travel destination.
Presented by the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority (HTA) and hosted at the world-class Hawai‘i Convention Center, this year’s conference, Sept. 26-30, encompasses a full week and covers a wide variety of subjects important to supporting the tourism industry, including perpetuation of the Hawaiian culture,
ecological sustainability, quality of the visitor experience, and marketing innovations (see schedule below). In addition, a host of networking opportunities will bring participants together with industry partners who are bringing business to the Hawaiian Islands. Continuing Professional Credits are also being offered to attendees.
George D. Szigeti, HTA president and CEO, noted the conference is designed for local and global participants to collaborate and capitalize on new business initiatives. “This year’s conference is focused on innovation, technology, networking, business-building opportunities, and celebrating our culture and environment, all the qualities needed for Hawai‘i to continue enjoying future success. As a destination,
we need to ensure that we are meeting the expectations of global travelers – especially millennials. This conference is fulfilling that objective.”
