Save the Date for HTA's Spring Marketing Update

The HTA will be hosting its annual Spring Marketing Update this March on Oahu, Hawaii Island and Maui. The HTA and its marketing contractors – the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau, Hawaii Tourism Japan, Hawaii Tourism Oceania, Hawaii Tourism China, Hawaii Tourism Korea, Hawaii Tourism Taiwan, Hawaii Tourism Europe and Meet Hawaii – will be presenting updates to their marketing plans and activities for 2014. 
The Oahu Spring Marketing Update on March 5, which will be streamed live through a webinar, will allow stakeholders from across the state to join in and gain insight as well as partnership opportunities for the new year. 
The meetings on Hawaii Island and Maui will not include the same presentations but instead offer an opportunity for open dialogue and Q&A with the presenters and attendees. Therefore, the HTA encourages those interested in attending the Maui and Hawaii Island Spring Marketing Updates to view the Oahu webinar, which will also be posted on the HTA’s website following the presentations.
Registration information will be available soon and seating is limited. For more information, contact HTA at (808) 973-2255.
