Social Media Opportunities for Tourism in Hawaii
Tourism is Hawaii's #1 export, but how are tourism companies in Hawaii using social media and what are some of the ways it could be even better?
Our panel will step into the social media "imagineerium" and share social media ideas that can directly benefit both tourism professionals and businesses in Hawaii. Our local social business experts will suggest a range of awesome outcomes that can result from adding new ideas, tactics, and strategies to our Hawaii marketing efforts. No matter how you're connected to tourism and who isn't, you'll have take-aways and campaign ideas which you can use immediately.
The presentation will be fast-paced and you'll have the chance to vote for and discuss your favorite ideas in the second part of the program. Bring your iPads, notebooks and be prepared to be inspired and have fun!
