Aloha Down Under 2016

Hawaii Tourism Oceania invite you to attend our Aloha Down Under Workshops taking place 3rd - 6th May 2016 and visiting Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Hawaii continues to be a popular choice for Aussie holidaymakers and the Aloha Down Under Workshops are YOUR chance to gain in-depth destination and product training on the Hawaiian Islands.

The Hawaiian Islands are a place of diverse natural beauty, unique culture, world class cuisine and a legendary aloha spirit. It's no wonder Hawaii has seen a huge surge in Australian visitors – we had another record-breaking year in 2015 with 333,998 visitors, an increase of 7.8% on 2014!

Those attending will:

  • Meet face-to-face with industry partners from Hawaii
  • Find out from the locals about what's new at the destination
  • Learn about the wide range of accommodation and activity options available in Hawaii
  • Be entertained by live Hawaiian music and dancing
  • Enter the draw for some awesome prizes

… and so much more!

Attending industry partners:

Hawaii offers a diverse range of accommodation, activities and attractions across six beautiful islands – Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai and Hawaii Island. We are pleased to announce that representatives from each of the Island Chapters, plus the below industry partners will be joining us at the Aloha Down Under Workshops.
