Find out what our line-up of experts think. In addition to the annual economic and visitor industry forecasts, this year’s forum will also feature a panel of representatives from Hawaii’s hotels, retailers and the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency to highlight the industry’s emergency preparedness initiatives.
