Industry B2B Sessions at this Year's Hawaii Tourism Conference

This year the HTA’s Hawaii Tourism Conference will feature a new and exciting opportunity for attendees to ‘roll up’ their sleeves and network one-on-one with national and international tour operators and wholesalers through the Getting Down to Business – Industry Shirt-Sleeve Sessions. The pre-scheduled seven-minute appointments provide an efficient way to discuss your product (e.g. hotel, activity, attraction), maximize opportunities, and network with key members of the visitor industry.

Twenty-seven major tour operators and wholesalers from North America, Japan, China, Korea, Australia and New Zealand will be represented. To see the full list of participating tour operators/wholesalers, click here. Appointments are limited, so register soon to get that coveted meeting! Scheduling is done upon registration for the conference here and be sure to sign up for the Getting Down to Business – Industry Shirt-Sleeve Session. This session will be held on both days of the conference, Aug. 22-23. To register for the conference or view the full agenda, click here.
