Kuhio Avenue is experiencing a renaissance of culture and class. No longer bars and back alleys, this Waikiki hot spot keeps the destination fresh with new shopping, lodging and events to entice and entertain guests. Within the last few years, there has been a significant upscaling of Kuhio Avenue with the introduction of contemporary new hotel properties, and the reopening of International Market Place. Join the industry community to learn about some of the new brands that have, and will, enter the market, who they are hoping to attract and the potential they see on Kuhio Avenue. Hear is the exciting lineup of speakers!
