Dynamic Stories and Insightful Travel Trends on Tap at this Year's Tourism Conference
With the changing media landscape, fewer and fewer daily newspapers have a travel editor. This year, attendees of the Hawai‘i Tourism Conference will have the opportunity to hear from the San Francisco Chronicle’s travel editor, Spud Hilton, one of the last remaining nationwide.
As a mature visitor destination, it is important that Hawai‘i continue to stay top-of-mind and relevant in the ever-evolving travel landscape. Hilton will share insight into what trends he is seeing in other destinations and the growing competition for Hawai‘i. He will also share his thoughts as to what makes the Hawaiian Islands unique and what sets us apart as a destination.
“Great stories are one of the most compelling things in any culture or landscape and Hawai‘i is rich with stories that offer a deeper connection to the destination,” said Hilton. “The more vivid the story, the more likely it is to inspire travelers to visit the islands for the opportunity to create their own.”
Hear more about Hilton’s stories of traveling to destinations around the world and what Hawaii’s visitor industry should do to remain competitive and successful. For more information on this year’s Hawaii Tourism Conference, click here.
