You love Hawaii? You sell Hawaii? You better be in Hawaii September 26-30


The Hawaii Tourism Conference is a must attend for travel agents and tour operators selling trips to Hawaii from anywhere in the world. It’s a must-attend event for visitors in love with the Aloha State and an interest in travel and tourism. It’s also a must-attend event for fans of Hawaiian music and culture.

The Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) wants the world to be in Hawaii from September 26-30. The most spectacular travel and tourism event for trade, media and visitors that fell in love with Hawaii tourism should bring a sold-out event, with Hawaii fans from around the globe to the Hawaii Convention Center. eTurboNews is proud to be a media partner and invites readers to look out for the eTN stand and say ALOHA!

September is a busy month for Hawaii MICE business, perhaps the busiest month ever when it comes to global exposure, travel, tourism, conservation and environment. So busy, even U.S. President Barack Obama will get on Air Force One to not miss the event in his home state.

September is a great opportunity for anyone contributing to the travel and tourism industry to make a lasting impression and to showcase the beauty of the Aloha State.

The  Hawaii Tourism Authority  and local hotels, including Outrigger Hotels and Resorts,are very well aware of this. Very special rates to delegates of the Hawaii Tourism Conference are in place.

What is going on in Hawaii?

After welcoming heads of State from countries around the globe, and delegates from as far as Bangladesh to participate at IUCN World Conversation Congress from September 1-10, the international spectacular will not stop there.

Many attending IUCN are planning to stay on for the Hawaii Tourism Conference. Visitors planning their vacation in Hawaii and having an interest in tourism and entertainment, and who want to experience Hawaii from a different point of view, may want to register for the Hawaii Tourism Conference.

Willie K and Friends will close out the Hawaii Tourism Conference on September 30 with a special performance. This alone is reason for those loving Hawaiian music to attend the conference.

Travel television explorer, Don Wildman, joins an all-star lineup of moderators and speakers.

Louis D’Amore, founder and president of the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism, will be attending, with the International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) to deliver a keynote address on Peace Through Tourism. A very special announcement is planned.

LGBT Hawaii will be the sponsor or a round-table discussion about the importance of the LGBT traveler for Hawaii.

Hawai’i epitomizes diversity, a unique culture and 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.

HTA’s 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, the Hawaii Tourism Conference will set a new benchmark for what a tourism conference can be and new ways to collaborate on game-changing ideas and best practices.
