Aloha From Hawaii to Washington D.C.

Hawaii tourism officials and hotel executives are in Washington, D.C., this week seeking new meetings business for Hawaii at the industry’s largest one-day trade show.

Representatives from the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau and Hawaii Convention Center will attend the 2010 Springtime Expo this Thursday — an event that is expected to attract 4,000 meeting planners and industry professionals from the surrounding Washington, D.C., region.

Also attending the event are hotel executives from a number of properties, including the Grand Wailea, Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa, Hilton Waikoloa Village, Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa, Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa, Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa, Sheraton Waikiki, The Fairmont Orchid Hawaii, Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa and Westin Maui Resort & Spa.

Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau is contracted by the Hawaii Tourism Authority, the state’s lead tourism agency, to provide marketing management services for the conventions, meetings and incentives business.
