Hawai’i epitomizes diversity, a unique culture & lifestyle, and a continually growing tourism economy. There is no better stimulating environment for a global summit on international tourism trends, strategic alliances and emerging opportunities. The 2016 Hawai’i Tourism Conference will bring together thought leaders, visionaries, suppliers, operators, policy makers and the media in an innovative format of networking and sharing. Our goal is for attendees to leave this year’s conference feeling inspired, informed and better connected across continents as key stakeholders in a rapidly evolving global travel marketplace. Together we will set a new benchmark for what a tourism conference can be and new ways to collaborate on game changing ideas and best practices.
